Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Holdrege09/02/2015Although the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start planning for furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple weeks, and potentially 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 upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Holdrege expect no hiccups, that’s not always possible. It’s not hard 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you evade various issues that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, potentially meaning furnace replacement A dangerous situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Reduced efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four concerns that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Holdrege weather starts getting questionable this winter. The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be treated like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things operating smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
