Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The safest way to stay ahead of any season is to service your furnace now and make sure that it is prepared when it’s needed. Of course, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist item to make sure that your furnace won’t cause you any sudden difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Relying on your furnace after months of dormancy is always a wager. It isn’t sensible to trust that months of winter means you can neglect your system. That, on top of months of inactivity with your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance issues and dirt buildup, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace useful?
Annual furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of potential problems within the year, including:
- Unsafe situations with gas or oil trouble in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could create potential furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an old furnace
- A voided warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Avoiding annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Magnolia weather is not the smartest option.
The best way to think about your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need particular regular maintenance to keep everything working smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan 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!
