Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The safest way to stay ahead of any season is to tune up your furnace now and guarantee that it is all set for when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t forget about that final winter checklist piece to make sure that your furnace won’t bring upong any unexpected issues this summer and next early fall.
Depending on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a wager. It isn’t sensible to trust that months of winter means you can disregard your system. That, on top of months without using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance issues and dirt buildup, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace beneficial?
Regular furnace service can help you dodge a number of potential problems within the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could bring about potential furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- A cancelled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time
Skipping regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Marshalltown weather is not the best option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need specific annual maintenance to keep everything working efficiently, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the perfect time to schedule service is now before you forget!
