Although 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 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 looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Shreveport 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 issues 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?”
Scheduling annual furnace service can help you evade various issues that can show up, including:
- A voided warranty due to improper maintenance
- Larger furnace problems that could be emerging, potentially ending with furnace replacement
- A hazardous situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
- Decreased efficiency because your furnace is running 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 skip your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Shreveport 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 operating smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
