Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Madera09/02/2015Even though 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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few 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 looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While many homeowners in Madera expect no issues, that’s not always realistic. It’s easy to get engrossed 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you evade various issues that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace concerns that could be developing, potentially leading to furnace replacement A hazardous situation if there are any issues 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 issues that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Madera weather starts getting questionable 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 best, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
