Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Baltimore09/02/2015While the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start considering furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple 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 impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While most homeowners in Baltimore expect no hiccups, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough to get caught up 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably questioning – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you avoid various issues that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to improper maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be developing, potentially leading to furnace replacement An unsafe 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 issues that can arise, 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 Baltimore weather starts getting bad 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 best, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
