Even 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 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 prevented with basic furnace service?
The impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While many homeowners in Norton expect no hiccups, that’s not always possible. It’s easy to get engrossed in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any problems last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same good fortune this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service a must?”
Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade a number of headaches that can come up, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be emerging, potentially meaning furnace replacement
- An unsafe situation if there are any concerns 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 concerns that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Norton weather starts getting bad 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 best, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
