Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Greenville09/02/2015Although the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few weeks, and potentially 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 stopped with basic furnace service? The upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Greenville expect no issues, that’s not always realistic. It’s not hard to get stuck 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service a necessity?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you evade a number of issues that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially leading to furnace replacement A hazardous situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Reduced efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four issues that can pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Greenville weather starts getting a little dicey 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 working smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
