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

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 considering furnace service. Sure, you won’t flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple weeks, and potentially 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 depending on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While many homeowners in Lincoln expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s easy to get stuck 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service a necessity?”

Scheduling annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of issues that can show up, including:

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

Of course, there are more than just these four concerns that can come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Lincoln 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 running smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
