Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Greencastle09/02/2015While the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start planning for furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn 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 stopped 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 a lot of homeowners in Greencastle expect no issues, that’s not always feasible. It’s not hard to get stuck 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 necessity?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you avoid various issues that can show up, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be emerging, potentially ending with furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Diminished 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 skip your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Greencastle 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 life of the equipment.
