Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Hamilton09/02/2015Although 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 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 stopped with basic furnace service? The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While most homeowners in Hamilton expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service a necessity?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you avoid various headaches that can show up, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace concerns that could be building up, potentially ending with furnace replacement A hazardous 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 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 Hamilton 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 operating smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
