Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Topeka09/02/2015While the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple 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 depending on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Topeka expect no hiccups, that’s not always feasible. 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 a necessity?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of headaches that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially leading to furnace replacement A hazardous 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 come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Topeka 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 greatest, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
