Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Olathe09/02/2015Although 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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few weeks, and potentially 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 stopped 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 Olathe expect no issues, that’s not always feasible. It’s not hard to get engrossed in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any concerns last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same luck this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade a variety of problems that can show up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be emerging, potentially leading to furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any problems 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 pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Olathe 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 operating smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
