Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The best way to prepare for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and ensure that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be changing your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t forget about that final winter checklist thing to ensure that your furnace won’t create any unforeseen problems this summer and next early fall.
Depending on your furnace after months of dormancy is always a risk. It isn’t sensible to believe 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 helpful?
Routine furnace service can help you avoid a number of possible problems within the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could create impending 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 Rochester weather is not the smartest option.
The best way to look at your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need certain regular maintenance to keep everything working smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would be reduced. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to schedule service is now before you forget!
