Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Chatsworth09/02/2015While 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 turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few weeks, and potentially 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 depending on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While many homeowners in Chatsworth expect no issues, that’s not always possible. It’s not hard to get engrossed in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any issues last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same lucky break this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service a necessity?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you sidestep a variety of issues that can show up, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace issues 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 Diminished efficiency because your furnace is working harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four problems 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 Chatsworth 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.
