Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in East Hanover09/02/2015Although the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start considering 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 go out in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been avoided with basic furnace service? The impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While many homeowners in East Hanover expect no issues, that’s not always feasible. It’s not hard to get stuck 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 thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you evade a number of issues that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially ending with furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Decreased efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four problems that can pop up, 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 East Hanover weather starts getting questionable 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 running smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
