Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The nicest way to gear up for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and make sure that it is all set for when it’s needed. Of course, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t forget about that final winter checklist item to certify that your furnace won’t create any unexpected problems this summer and next early fall.
Depending on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a risk. It isn’t practical 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 difficulties and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace beneficial?
Routine furnace service can help you dodge a number of likely problems throughout the year, including:
- Hazardous situations with gas or oil trouble in your furnace
- More complex furnace problems that could create impending furnace replacement
- Decreased efficiency, due to a wornout furnace
- A cancelled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time
Forgetting regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Arlington weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to think about your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need particular annual maintenance to keep everything running smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifetime of your car would be reduced. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to arrange service is now before you forget!
