Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Mount Pleasant09/02/2015Even though the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start considering 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 avoided with basic furnace service? The upcoming 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 Mount Pleasant expect no hiccups, that’s not always possible. 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you avoid various problems that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace concerns 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 issues that can pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Mount Pleasant weather starts getting a little dicey 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 best, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
