Furnace Boiler Maintenance

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

Although 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 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 relying on a system that has been inactive for months on end. While most homeowners in Grand Prairie expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not hard 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 lucky break this year. By now you’re probably thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?”

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

  • A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
  • Larger furnace concerns that could be developing, potentially leading to furnace replacement
  • An unsafe 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 come up, but the last thing you want to happen is to miss your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Grand Prairie 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 greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
