Furnace Boiler Maintenance

Too Soon? Think Again Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Moline

While 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 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 looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While many homeowners in Moline expect no hiccups, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough to get caught up 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 wondering – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”

Setting up annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of headaches that can show up, including:

  • A voided warranty due to improper maintenance
  • Larger furnace concerns that could be developing, 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 arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss 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 working smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
