Furnace Boiler Maintenance

Too Soon? Think Again Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Columbus

Even though 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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of 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 prevented with basic furnace service?

The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Columbus expect no issues, that’s not always possible. It’s not hard to get stuck 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”

Setting up annual furnace service can help you evade a number of issues that can arise, 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 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 arise, 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 Columbus weather starts getting bad 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 running smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
