Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The safest way to stay ahead of any season is to service your furnace now and ensure that it is ready to go 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 thing to make sure that your furnace won’t create any unforeseen problems this summer and next early fall.
Depending on your furnace after months of not using it is always a gamble. It isn’t practical to think that months of winter means you can forget about your system. That, on top of months not using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance difficulties and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is tuning your furnace helpful?
Routine furnace service can help you avoid a number of potential problems throughout the year, including:
- Unsafe situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace
- More complex furnace problems that could lead to possible furnace replacement
- Decreased efficiency, due to an old furnace
- An annulled warranty after irregular maintenance over time
Forgetting annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with York weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need particular regular maintenance to keep everything operating correctly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the perfect time to schedule service is now before you forget!
