Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The best way to stay ahead of any season is to tune up your furnace now and make sure that it is all set for when it’s needed. Of course, in a few weeks you will be changing your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t disregard that final winter checklist item to ensure that your furnace won’t bring upong any unforeseen problems this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of not using it is always a wager. It isn’t sensible to trust that months of winter means you can neglect your system. That, on top of months not using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance problems and dirt logjam, especially if there is no arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace helpful?
Annual furnace service can help you dodge a number of likely problems within the year, including:
- Unsafe situations with gas or oil trouble in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could create impending furnace replacement
- Reduced efficiency, due to an old furnace
- A voided warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Skipping routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Florissant weather is not the smartest option.
The best way to look at your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need certain routine maintenance to keep everything operating efficiently, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the perfect time to arrange service is now before you forget!
