Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Tuscaloosa09/02/2015While 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 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 relying on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While many homeowners in Tuscaloosa expect no problems, 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 a must?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade a number of problems that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be emerging, potentially leading to 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 running harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four concerns that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Tuscaloosa weather starts getting bad 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 lifespan of the equipment.
