Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Albuquerque09/02/2015Although 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 impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While most homeowners in Albuquerque expect no problems, that’s not always feasible. It’s not tough 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?” Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid various issues that can arise, including: A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance Larger furnace problems that could be developing, potentially meaning furnace replacement A dangerous situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace Reduced efficiency because your furnace is operating 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 miss your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Albuquerque weather starts getting questionable 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 working smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
