Furnace Boiler Maintenance

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

While the autumnal equinox hasn’t brought about the official start of fall and the end of summer, now is the time to start planning for furnace service. Sure, you won’t flip your thermostat to the ‘heat’ setting for a few weeks, and potentially months if you’re lucky, but why wait for your furnace to stop working in the middle of a winter storm when it could have been avoided 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 Pocatello expect no problems, that’s not always possible. It’s not hard to get engrossed in the thought that your furnace kept you warm without any problems 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 a must?”

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 concerns that could be building up, potentially ending with furnace replacement
  • A dangerous situation if there are any problems 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 pop up, but the last thing you want to happen is to skip your annual furnace service and have it stop working on you when the Pocatello 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 operating smoothly and at their greatest, which in turn can help prolong the lifespan of the equipment.
