Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Chadron09/02/2015Even though 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 couple weeks, and maybe months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to quit running in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been prevented with basic furnace service? The impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While most homeowners in Chadron expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. 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 thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you sidestep a variety of issues that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be developing, potentially meaning furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Decreased efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four problems that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Chadron weather starts getting questionable this winter. The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be treated like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things operating smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
