Just because winter is nearing its end 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 perform maintenance on your furnace now and guarantee that it is ready to go 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 item to make sure that your furnace won’t bring upong any unexpected problems this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of not using it is always a risk. It isn’t practical to believe that months of winter means you can neglect your system. That, on top of months without using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance issues and dirt buildup, especially if there is no planned tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace useful?
Annual furnace service can help you dodge a number of potential problems during the year, including:
- Unsafe situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could bring about potential furnace replacement
- Decreased efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- An annulled warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Avoiding routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Norco and St. Charles Parish weather is not the smartest option.
The best way to think about your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need certain annual maintenance to keep everything operating correctly, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the perfect time to schedule service is now before you forget!
