Although the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start considering furnace service. Sure, you won’t flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of weeks, and potentially months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to stop working in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been avoided with basic furnace service?
The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While most homeowners in Mount Pleasant expect no hiccups, that’s not always realistic. It’s not hard to get caught up in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any issues last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same luck this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”
Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid a variety of headaches that can arise, including:
- A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
- Larger furnace problems that could be emerging, potentially ending with furnace replacement
- An unsafe situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Reduced 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 not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Mount Pleasant weather starts getting bad this winter.
The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be maintained like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things working smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
