Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Hauppauge09/02/2015While 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 switch over 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 relying on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While many homeowners in Hauppauge expect no issues, that’s not always feasible. It’s not hard to get engrossed 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 questioning – “So why is furnace service a necessity?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade a variety of problems that can show 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 issues 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 come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Hauppauge 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 peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
