Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The safest way to prepare for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and make sure that it is all set for when it’s needed. Sure, 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 make sure that your furnace won’t cause you any unexpected difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of inactivity is always a gamble. It isn’t realistic to think that months of winter means you can neglect your system. That, on top of months not using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance difficulties and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace beneficial?
Annual furnace service can help you dodge a number of likely problems within the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could bring about potential furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- A voided warranty after a lack of maintenance over time
Avoiding regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Bishop weather is not the best option.
The best way to think about your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need certain annual maintenance to keep everything running correctly, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would be reduced. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to schedule service is now before you forget!
