Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The best way to prepare for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and make sure that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Yes, in a few weeks you will be changing your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t forget about that final winter checklist item to make sure that your furnace won’t bring upong 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 trust 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 problems and dirt buildup, especially if there is no arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace helpful?
Routine furnace service can help you dodge a number of possible problems within the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More complicated furnace problems that could lead to impending furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an old furnace
- An annulled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time
Skipping regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Chadron weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to think about your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need specific routine maintenance to keep everything running efficiently, and without this maintenance, the lifetime of your car would be reduced. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to arrange service is now before you forget!
