Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The safest way to gear up for any season is to service your furnace now and make sure that it is prepared when it’s needed. Of course, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t disregard that final winter checklist item to certify that your furnace won’t cause you any unforeseen problems this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of dormancy is always a gamble. It isn’t realistic 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 logjam, especially if there is no arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace beneficial?
Regular furnace service can help you avoid a number of likely problems during the year, including:
- Hazardous situations with gas or oil trouble in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could lead to possible furnace replacement
- Reduced efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- A voided warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Skipping regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Holdrege weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to look at your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need specific regular maintenance to keep everything running correctly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would be reduced. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to arrange service is now before you forget!
