Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The nicest way to stay ahead of any season is to tune up your furnace now and ensure that it is prepared when it’s needed. Yes, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t forget about that final winter checklist piece to ensure that your furnace won’t bring upong any unforeseen issues this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of not using it is always a gamble. It isn’t sensible to believe that months of winter means you can disregard 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 arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace beneficial?
Annual furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of potential problems within the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More complicated furnace problems that could create impending furnace replacement
- Decreased efficiency, due to an old furnace
- An annulled warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Forgetting annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Lake Forest weather is not the best option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need specific routine 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 perfect time to setup service is now before you forget!
