Furnace Boiler Maintenance

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

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 thinking about furnace service. Sure, you won’t turn 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 looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Hudsonville expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s easy to get engrossed 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 good fortune this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?”

Arranging annual furnace service can help you sidestep a number of headaches that can come up, including:

  • A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
  • Larger furnace issues that could be emerging, potentially leading to furnace replacement
  • A hazardous situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
  • Reduced efficiency because your furnace is working 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 miss your annual furnace service and have it stop running on you when the Hudsonville 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 operating smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
