Just because winter is coming to a close 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 make sure that it is all set for when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be changing your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist piece to make sure that your furnace won’t cause you any sudden difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of dormancy is always a risk. It isn’t realistic to trust that months of winter means you can forget about your system. That, on top of months without using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance difficulties and dirt buildup, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace helpful?
Routine furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of potential problems within the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could create impending furnace replacement
- Decreased efficiency, due to a wornout furnace
- An annulled warranty after irregular maintenance over time
Avoiding regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Genoa weather is not the best option.
The best way to look at your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need particular routine maintenance to keep everything operating correctly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would be reduced. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to schedule service is now before you forget!
