Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about 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 all set for when it’s needed. Of course, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t disregard that final winter checklist piece to make sure that your furnace won’t create any unforeseen difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of inactivity is always a risk. It isn’t practical to trust 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 arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace useful?
Routine furnace service can help you avoid a number of potential problems within the year, including:
- Hazardous situations with gas or oil trouble in your furnace
- More complicated furnace problems that could bring about impending furnace replacement
- Reduced efficiency, due to a wornout furnace
- An annulled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time
Avoiding routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Franklin & South Indy weather is not the best option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need particular routine maintenance to keep everything operating efficiently, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would be reduced. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to setup service is now before you forget!
