Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Dallas09/02/2015Although the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple 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 counting on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Dallas expect no problems, that’s not always feasible. It’s easy 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service a must?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you evade a number of issues that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be developing, potentially leading to 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 running harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four issues that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Dallas weather starts getting a little dicey 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 operating smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
