Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The nicest way to stay ahead of any season is to service your furnace now and make sure that it is all set for 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 certify that your furnace won’t bring upong any sudden problems this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of inactivity is always a wager. It isn’t sensible 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 problems and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace useful?
Annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of likely problems throughout the year, including:
- Unsafe situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace
- More complicated furnace problems that could lead to impending furnace replacement
- Reduced efficiency, due to an old furnace
- An annulled warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Avoiding routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Tuscaloosa weather is not the best option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need certain routine maintenance to keep everything running efficiently, and without this maintenance, the lifetime of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to arrange service is now before you forget!
