Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Pacheco09/02/2015While the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start thinking about 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 upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Pacheco expect no issues, that’s not always possible. It’s not hard 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service a must?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you evade a variety of headaches that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be emerging, potentially meaning furnace replacement A hazardous situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Diminished efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four problems that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Pacheco weather starts getting bad this winter. The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be serviced like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things working smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
