Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The safest way to gear up for any season is to tune up your furnace now and guarantee that it is prepared 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 ensure that your furnace won’t create any sudden issues this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of dormancy is always a risk. It isn’t practical to think that months of winter means you can forget about your system. That, on top of months without using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance difficulties and dirt buildup, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace helpful?
Regular furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of possible problems within the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More complex furnace problems that could bring about possible furnace replacement
- Reduced efficiency, due to a wornout furnace
- A voided warranty after irregular maintenance over time
Forgetting regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Marshfield weather is not the smartest option.
The best way to think about your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need specific annual maintenance to keep everything running correctly, and without this maintenance, the lifetime of your car would be reduced. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to schedule service is now before you forget!
