Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Odessa09/02/2015While 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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few 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 stopped with basic furnace service? The impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While many homeowners in Odessa expect no problems, that’s not always possible. It’s not hard 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of issues that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, potentially meaning furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Decreased efficiency because your furnace is running 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 Odessa weather starts getting a little dicey this winter. The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be maintained like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things working smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
