Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Ridgedale and the Branson area09/02/2015While 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 flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple 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 prevented with basic furnace service? The upcoming 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 Ridgedale and the Branson area expect no issues, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough to get stuck 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 wondering – “So why is furnace service a must?” Scheduling annual furnace service can help you evade a variety of headaches that can come up, including: A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be developing, potentially leading to furnace replacement A dangerous situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Reduced efficiency because your furnace is running harder than it has to Of course, there are more than just these four problems that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Ridgedale and the Branson area 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 running smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
