Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The safest way to prepare for any season is to tune up your furnace now and guarantee that it is prepared when it’s needed. Yes, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t disregard that final winter checklist thing to ensure that your furnace won’t create any unforeseen problems this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of dormancy is always a risk. 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 difficulties and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no planned tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking 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 trouble in your furnace
- More complicated furnace problems that could bring about impending furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- An annulled warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Avoiding annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Carson City weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to think about your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need certain annual maintenance to keep everything operating smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifetime 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!
