Furnace Boiler Maintenance

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

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 few 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 depending on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While many homeowners in Tuscaloosa expect no hiccups, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough to get engrossed 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 evade a variety 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
  • Decreased efficiency because your furnace is running 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 not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Tuscaloosa weather starts getting bad this winter.

The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be serviced like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things working smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
