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 turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few weeks, and possibly 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 relying on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While many homeowners in Newark expect no hiccups, that’s not always feasible. It’s easy to get caught up 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 wondering – “So why is furnace service necessary?”
Scheduling annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of problems that can show up, including:
- A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
- Larger furnace issues that could be developing, potentially ending with furnace replacement
- A dangerous situation if there are any concerns 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 problems that can pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Newark weather starts getting a little dicey 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 greatest, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
