Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The safest way to gear up for any season is to service your furnace now and ensure 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 piece to ensure that your furnace won’t cause you any sudden difficulties 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 disregard your system. That, on top of months not using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance difficulties and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace helpful?
Regular furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of likely problems throughout the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil trouble in your furnace
- More complicated furnace problems that could create impending furnace replacement
- Reduced efficiency, due to an old furnace
- A cancelled warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Avoiding routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Plainfield weather is not the smartest option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need particular annual maintenance to keep everything working correctly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the perfect time to setup service is now before you forget!
