Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Homer Glen09/02/2015While the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple weeks, and maybe months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to go out in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been stopped with basic furnace service? The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While many homeowners in Homer Glen expect no problems, that’s not always feasible. It’s easy 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you avoid a variety of issues that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be developing, potentially leading to 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 working 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 Homer Glen 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 working smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
