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 planning for 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 stopped with basic furnace service? The upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While most homeowners in Humble expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not hard to get stuck 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service a necessity?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of problems that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be developing, potentially meaning furnace replacement A dangerous 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 problems 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 Humble 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 peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
