Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The safest way to stay ahead of any season is to service your furnace now and guarantee that it is prepared when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist piece to ensure that your furnace won’t bring upong any sudden difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Relying on your furnace after months of not using it is always a gamble. It isn’t realistic to trust that months of winter means you can forget about your system. That, on top of months not using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance problems and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace beneficial?
Routine furnace service can help you dodge a number of likely problems within the year, including:
- Hazardous situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could lead to potential furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an old furnace
- A cancelled warranty after irregular maintenance over time
Forgetting annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Circleville weather is not the smartest option.
The best way to think about your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need certain regular maintenance to keep everything operating correctly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to schedule service is now before you forget!
