It’s that time of year again when the air starts to chill and fall is in the air. This means it is also time for one of the most important tasks for homeowners: getting your furnace serviced. Fall should be treated as a warning sign, not just because winter is right around the corner but because you don’t want things to get worse while you wait until next year or even later than that!
Here are a handful of reasons why fall is the best time to get your furnace serviced.
1.) It’s Still Mild Outside
As the weather turns colder, your furnace will be called into service more frequently. That’s why it is best to get things done while it is still warm outside and you aren’t in a rush to get your unit up and running for winter.
The longer you wait, the worse off you could potentially be when your thermostat calls the furnace for heat. Imagine leaving your car sit for 5 months and starting it up for the first time. Chances are, it will need some sort of maintenance.
2.) HVAC Shops Aren’t As Busy
October and November are not as busy for HVAC companies. That means that your call will be prioritized. Don’t wait until it’s called and have to wait days (or weeks) to have a technician visit your home.
3.) Supply Chain Issues
As the US (and the world) is coming out of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our industry is not unique in the sense that some parts, materials, and units are subjected to supply chain issues. In case your unit is affected by a slow supply chain, it’s best any needed parts are ordered now. This way, if there is a couple of week turnaround time, the parts could be in before you need to turn your furnace on for the first time.
4.) It’s Responsible,
and Good For Your Wallet.
As we’ve previously touched on, it’s good to get your furnace serviced in the fall so you’re ready for winter. If problems crop up during a tuneup or service call, they can be addressed before you turn your furnace on and potentially avoid additional costs later down the road.
With winter coming, now is the perfect time to schedule your furnace service. Fall offers a great opportunity for homeowners to take care of this task before it becomes difficult or expensive. You can save yourself time and money by having your heating system serviced today rather than later in the season when you are less likely to have an option with availability.
