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

Even 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 flip 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 upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Springfield expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service a must?”

Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade various headaches that can show up, including:

  • A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
  • Larger furnace concerns that could be developing, potentially ending with 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 problems that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Springfield 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 running smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
