Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The nicest way to gear up for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and ensure that it is all set for when it’s needed. Yes, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t forget about that final winter checklist piece to ensure that your furnace won’t create any sudden difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Relying on your furnace after months of not using it is always a wager. It isn’t sensible to believe 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 difficulties and dirt buildup, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace helpful?
Regular furnace service can help you dodge a number of potential problems within the year, including:
- Unsafe situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could lead to impending furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an old furnace
- A cancelled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time
Skipping routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Brandon weather is not the smartest option.
The best way to think about your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need certain regular maintenance to keep everything working correctly, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to arrange service is now before you forget!
