Furnace Boiler Maintenance

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

Although 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 flip 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 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 idle for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Hickory expect no issues, 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 a must?”

Setting up annual furnace service can help you evade a variety of problems that can come up, including:

  • A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
  • Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially leading to furnace replacement
  • A dangerous situation if there are any issues with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
  • Decreased efficiency because your furnace is operating harder than it has to

Of course, there are more than just these four concerns that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Hickory weather starts getting a little dicey 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 working smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
