Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio09/02/2015While 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 quit running 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 relying on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While most homeowners in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio expect no hiccups, that’s not always realistic. It’s easy to get engrossed 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 questioning – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you sidestep a variety of issues that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace concerns that could be developing, potentially leading to furnace replacement A hazardous situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Reduced efficiency because your furnace is working harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four issues that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Napoleon and Northwest Ohio weather starts getting a little dicey 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 running smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
