Furnace Boiler Maintenance

Too Soon? Think Again Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Menomonie and western Wisconsin

While 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 couple weeks, and possibly 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 impending colder weather means that you’ll slowly begin depending on a system that has been sitting unused for months on end. While many homeowners in Menomonie and western Wisconsin expect no problems, that’s not always realistic. It’s not tough to get stuck 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 thinking – “So why is furnace service necessary?”

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

  • A voided warranty due to unsuitable maintenance
  • Larger furnace issues that could be building up, potentially meaning furnace replacement
  • A dangerous situation if there are any problems with the gas or oil portions of your furnace
  • Reduced 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 go out on you when the Menomonie and western Wisconsin weather starts getting a little dicey 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 operating smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the life of the equipment.
