Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The best way to prepare for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and guarantee that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist piece to certify that your furnace won’t bring upong any unforeseen difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Relying on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a risk. It isn’t realistic to trust that months of winter means you can forget about your system. That, on top of months of inactivity with your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance issues and dirt logjam, especially if there is no planned tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace useful?
Regular furnace service can help you dodge a number of likely problems during the year, including:
- Unsafe situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could lead to potential furnace replacement
- Decreased efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- An annulled warranty after irregular maintenance over time
Skipping annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Lawrence weather is not the best option.
The best way to look at your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need particular annual maintenance to keep everything working correctly, 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!
