Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Manassas Park09/02/2015Although the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start 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 counting on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While many homeowners in Manassas Park expect no problems, that’s not always feasible. It’s easy to get caught up 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Arranging annual furnace service can help you evade various headaches that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, 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 come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Manassas Park weather starts getting questionable 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 peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
