Furnace Boiler Maintenance

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

While 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 few 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 looming colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin counting on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While many homeowners in Waterloo 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 concerns 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 necessary?”

Setting up annual furnace service can help you sidestep various problems that can come up, including:

  • A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
  • Larger furnace concerns that could be developing, potentially meaning furnace replacement
  • A hazardous situation if there are any concerns with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
  • Reduced efficiency because your furnace is running 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 go out on you when the Waterloo 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 running smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
