Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The nicest way to prepare for any season is to service your furnace now and make sure that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist thing to make sure that your furnace won’t create any sudden difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Relying on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a gamble. It isn’t sensible to think 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 issues and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace beneficial?
Annual furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of potential problems during the year, including:
- Hazardous situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace
- More complex furnace problems that could bring about impending furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an old furnace
- A cancelled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time
Forgetting regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Monroe weather is not the best option.
The best way to look at your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need specific annual maintenance to keep everything operating smoothly, 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!
