Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Wisconsin Rapids09/02/2015Although 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 turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of weeks, and potentially 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 upcoming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While most homeowners in Wisconsin Rapids 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 problems 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?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you evade a number of headaches that can show up, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially ending with furnace replacement An unsafe situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Reduced 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 miss your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Wisconsin Rapids weather starts getting questionable 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 running smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
