Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Colorado Springs09/02/2015Although 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 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 stopped with basic furnace service? The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin relying on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While most homeowners in Colorado Springs expect no hiccups, that’s not always feasible. It’s not tough 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service a necessity?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you sidestep various problems that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace issues that could be developing, 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 operating harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four problems that can pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to not schedule your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Colorado Springs 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 running smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
