Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Moline09/02/2015While the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start planning for furnace service. Sure, you won’t flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of weeks, and maybe 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 upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Moline expect no hiccups, 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service a must?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you sidestep a variety of headaches that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace concerns that could be building up, 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 working harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four concerns 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 Moline weather starts getting questionable 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.
