Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Excelsior Springs09/02/2015Even though the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple weeks, and possibly months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to quit running in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been avoided with basic furnace service? The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While many homeowners in Excelsior Springs expect no issues, that’s not always realistic. It’s easy to get stuck 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of issues that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace concerns that could be developing, potentially ending with furnace replacement A hazardous situation if there are any issues 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 skip your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Excelsior Springs 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 lifespan of the equipment.
