Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The best way to stay ahead of any season is to tune up your furnace now and make sure that it is prepared when it’s needed. Of course, 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 certify that your furnace won’t bring upong any unexpected problems this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of inactivity is always a risk. It isn’t practical to trust that months of winter means you can forget about your system. That, on top of months not using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance difficulties and dirt buildup, especially if there is no planned tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace helpful?
Regular furnace service can help you avoid a number of possible problems throughout the year, including:
- Hazardous situations with gas or oil trouble in your furnace
- More complicated furnace problems that could lead to possible furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an old furnace
- A voided warranty after irregular maintenance over time
Forgetting routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Crystal and Twin Cities weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to look at your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need certain annual maintenance to keep everything working efficiently, and without this maintenance, the lifetime of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to arrange service is now before you forget!
