Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Northwest Arkansas09/02/2015While 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 turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few weeks, and possibly 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 impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While many homeowners in Northwest Arkansas expect no hiccups, that’s not always possible. It’s not tough to get stuck 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 questioning – “So why is furnace service a must?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of problems that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace problems 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 Decreased efficiency because your furnace is operating 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 skip your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Northwest Arkansas weather starts getting questionable this winter. The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be treated like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things running smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
