Furnace Boiler Maintenance

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

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 turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple weeks, and potentially months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to stop working in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been stopped with basic furnace service?

The impending 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 Mechanicsville expect no problems, that’s not always possible. It’s not tough to get engrossed in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any problems last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same good fortune this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service a must?”

Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade a variety of headaches that can show up, including:

  • A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
  • Larger furnace problems that could be emerging, potentially meaning 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 issues that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Mechanicsville weather starts getting bad 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 working smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
