Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The nicest way to stay ahead of any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and guarantee that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist piece to certify that your furnace won’t create any unforeseen difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Depending on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a wager. It isn’t sensible to think that months of winter means you can forget about your system. That, on top of months of inactivity with your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance issues and dirt logjam, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace helpful?
Routine furnace service can help you dodge a number of likely problems within the year, including:
- Hazardous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More complicated furnace problems that could create impending furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to a wornout furnace
- A cancelled warranty after irregular maintenance over time
Forgetting annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Wharton weather is not the best option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need particular annual maintenance to keep everything working smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifetime of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the perfect time to schedule service is now before you forget!
