Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Bloomington09/02/2015Even though the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of 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 upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While many homeowners in Bloomington expect no issues, that’s not always possible. It’s not tough 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you avoid various problems that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially ending with furnace replacement A dangerous situation if there are any concerns 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 go out on you when the Bloomington weather starts getting a little dicey 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 best, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
