Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The best way to prepare for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and make sure that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Of course, in a few weeks you will be changing your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist thing to ensure that your furnace won’t cause you any unexpected issues this summer and next early fall.
Relying on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a wager. It isn’t practical to think 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 difficulties and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is tuning your furnace helpful?
Regular furnace service can help you avoid a number of likely problems during the year, including:
- Unsafe situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could create impending furnace replacement
- Decreased efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- A cancelled warranty after irregular maintenance over time
Avoiding annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with the Rio Grande Valley weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need specific annual maintenance to keep everything operating efficiently, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to setup service is now before you forget!
