Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The best way to gear up for any season is to tune up your furnace now and ensure that it is prepared 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 piece to ensure that your furnace won’t cause you any unforeseen problems this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of not using it is always a gamble. It isn’t sensible to believe 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 tuning your furnace useful?
Regular furnace service can help you dodge a number of potential problems during the year, including:
- Hazardous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could bring about possible furnace replacement
- Reduced efficiency, due to an old furnace
- A cancelled warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Forgetting annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Jefferson City weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need particular routine maintenance to keep everything running efficiently, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to arrange service is now before you forget!
