Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Columbus09/02/2015Although the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start considering 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 easy 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 wondering – “So why is furnace service a necessity?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of headaches that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, potentially ending with furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Diminished efficiency because your furnace is working 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 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 running smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
