Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The safest way to prepare for any season is to tune up your furnace now and ensure that it is prepared 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 item to make sure that your furnace won’t cause you any unforeseen difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Relying on your furnace after months of not using it is always a risk. It isn’t realistic to think that months of winter means you can disregard your system. That, on top of months not using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance problems and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace useful?
Routine furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of potential problems during the year, including:
- Unsafe situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More complex furnace problems that could create potential furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an old furnace
- A voided warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Forgetting routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Georgetown weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need specific annual maintenance to keep everything working smoothly, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to arrange service is now before you forget!
