Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Minocqua09/02/2015Although 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 couple weeks, and possibly 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 avoided with basic furnace service? The impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While many homeowners in Minocqua expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not hard to get caught up 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service a must?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you evade a number of headaches that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be emerging, potentially ending with furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Diminished efficiency because your furnace is working 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 stop working on you when the Minocqua 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 running smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
