Furnace Boiler Maintenance

Too Soon? Think Again Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Shelby

Even though 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 flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few weeks, and maybe 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 inactive for months on end. While most homeowners in Shelby expect no problems, 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service a must?”

Setting up annual furnace service can help you evade various problems that can come up, including:

  • A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
  • Larger furnace problems that could be developing, potentially ending with furnace replacement
  • A dangerous 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 concerns that can pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Shelby weather starts getting bad this winter.

The fact is that your furnace, and your air conditioner, should be maintained like a car. There are routine maintenance needs that keep things operating smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
