Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The nicest way to stay ahead of any season is to service your furnace now and guarantee that it is all set for when it’s needed. Of course, in a few weeks you will be switching 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 cause you any unexpected difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Relying on your furnace after months of dormancy is always a wager. It isn’t practical to trust 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 issues and dirt buildup, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace useful?
Regular furnace service can help you dodge a number of possible problems during the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More complicated furnace problems that could bring about possible furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an old furnace
- A voided warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Skipping annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Moline weather is not the smartest option.
The best way to look at your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need particular regular maintenance to keep everything operating efficiently, and without this maintenance, the lifetime of your car would be reduced. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to setup service is now before you forget!
