The nicest way to gear up for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and make sure that it is prepared when it’s needed. Yes, in a few weeks you will be switching 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 sudden issues this summer and next early fall. Trusting your furnace after months of not using it is always a risk. It isn’t sensible to think that months of winter means you can disregard your system. That, on top of months of inactivity with 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 tuning your furnace beneficial? Regular furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of possible problems during the year, including: Dangerous situations with gas or oil trouble in your furnace More intricate furnace problems that could create possible furnace replacement Decreased efficiency, due to a wornout furnace A cancelled warranty after sporadic maintenance over time Avoiding annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Bishop weather is not the best option.
