Furnace Boiler Maintenance

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

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 switch over your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a number of weeks, and maybe 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 avoided with basic furnace service?

The looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While a lot of homeowners in Kearney expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s easy to get caught up 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 evade various headaches that can show up, including:

  • A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
  • Larger furnace concerns that could be emerging, potentially leading to furnace replacement
  • A dangerous situation if there are any problems 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 issues that can pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Kearney 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 operating smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the lifecycle of the equipment.
