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 gear up for any season is to service your furnace now and ensure that it is prepared 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 make sure that your furnace won’t bring upong any unexpected issues this summer and next early fall.
Depending on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a wager. It isn’t practical to believe 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 problems and dirt buildup, especially if there is no planned tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace beneficial?
Regular furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of possible problems within the year, including:
- Hazardous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More complicated furnace problems that could create possible furnace replacement
- Decreased efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- A cancelled warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Forgetting annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Rapid City weather is not the best option.
The best way to look at your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need specific routine maintenance to keep everything operating efficiently, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to setup service is now before you forget!
