Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Redford09/02/2015Although 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 flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple weeks, and potentially 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 stopped with basic furnace service? The impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While most homeowners in Redford expect no hiccups, that’s not always possible. It’s not tough to get engrossed 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 must?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of problems that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be building up, 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 operating harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four problems that can pop up, 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 Redford 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 operating smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
