Furnace Boiler Maintenance

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

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 maybe months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to go out in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been stopped with basic furnace service?

The impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting idle for months on end. While many homeowners in Wisconsin Rapids expect no hiccups, that’s not always realistic. It’s not hard to get engrossed in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any issues last year, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll have the same lucky break this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service a must?”

Setting up annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of headaches that can show up, including:

  • A voided warranty due to improper maintenance
  • Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially ending with furnace replacement
  • An unsafe situation if there are any issues 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 concerns that can arise, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Wisconsin Rapids 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 running smoothly and at their peak, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
