Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Safford09/02/2015While 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 flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple weeks, and maybe 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 upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While most homeowners in Safford expect no problems, that’s not always possible. It’s not hard 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 a must?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you avoid various issues that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be building up, potentially ending with furnace replacement A dangerous situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Diminished efficiency because your furnace is running harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four issues that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Safford 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 peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
