Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Genoa09/02/2015While the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of weeks, and maybe months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to go out in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been stopped with basic furnace service? The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While many homeowners in Genoa expect no problems, that’s not always possible. It’s not tough to get engrossed in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any concerns last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same good fortune this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of issues that can show up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be developing, potentially leading to furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Diminished efficiency because your furnace is working harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four concerns that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Genoa weather starts getting bad this winter. The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be serviced like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things operating smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
