Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Carson City09/02/2015Even though 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 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 avoided with basic furnace service? The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While many homeowners in Carson City expect no hiccups, that’s not always realistic. It’s easy 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service a necessity?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you avoid various issues that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially leading to furnace replacement An unsafe 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 pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Carson City 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 operating smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
