Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Crystal Lake09/02/2015Although the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start considering 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 stop working 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 relying on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Crystal Lake expect no issues, that’s not always realistic. It’s not hard 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service a must?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you avoid a variety of issues that can show up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be developing, potentially meaning furnace replacement A dangerous situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Decreased efficiency because your furnace is running harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four issues 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 Crystal Lake 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 working smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
