Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Moline09/02/2015While the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start planning for furnace service. Sure, you won’t flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of weeks, and maybe months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to go out 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 relying on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While most homeowners in Moline expect no hiccups, that’s not always feasible. It’s not tough to get caught up in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any problems 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 necessity?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you sidestep a variety of issues that can show up, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be emerging, potentially ending with furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any concerns 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 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 Moline 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 running smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
