Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Humble09/02/2015Even though the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start considering furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of weeks, and possibly 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 avoided with basic furnace service? The upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While most homeowners in Humble expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough to get stuck in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any problems 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 necessity?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid a variety of problems that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be developing, potentially meaning furnace replacement A dangerous situation if there are any concerns 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 not schedule your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Humble weather starts getting questionable this winter. The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be serviced like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things operating smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
