Furnace Boiler Maintenance

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

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 turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a couple 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 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 many homeowners in Saint Marys expect no problems, that’s not always possible. It’s not tough to get stuck in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any concerns 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 necessity?”

Scheduling annual furnace service can help you avoid a variety of problems that can show up, including:

  • A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
  • Larger furnace problems that could be building up, potentially leading to furnace replacement
  • A hazardous situation if there are any concerns 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 pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Saint Marys weather starts getting bad 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 working smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
