Furnace Boiler Maintenance

Too Soon? Think Again Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Suffolk/Nassau County

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 turn your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few 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 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 most homeowners in Suffolk/Nassau County expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough 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 luck this year. By now you’re probably wondering – “So why is furnace service necessary?”

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

  • A voided warranty due to incorrect maintenance
  • Larger furnace problems 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
  • Decreased efficiency because your furnace is operating 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 not schedule your annual furnace service and have it go out on you when the Suffolk/Nassau County 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 running smoothly and at their best, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
