Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Florissant09/02/2015 Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The best way to gear up for 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 switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t disregard that final winter checklist item to ensure that your furnace won’t create any sudden difficulties this summer and next early fall. Relying on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a gamble. It isn’t realistic to trust that months of winter means you can disregard your system. That, on top of months of inactivity with your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance problems and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no planned tune-up. So why right now? Why is tuning your furnace beneficial? Regular furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of possible problems within the year, including: Hazardous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace More complicated furnace problems that could bring about possible furnace replacement Decreased efficiency, due to a wornout furnace An annulled warranty after irregular maintenance over time Forgetting annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Florissant weather is not the smartest option. The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need certain annual maintenance to keep everything running correctly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to setup service is now before you forget!
