Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in the Midlands09/02/2015 Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The safest way to stay ahead of any season is to tune up your furnace now and ensure that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist piece to certify that your furnace won’t cause you any unforeseen problems this summer and next early fall. Depending on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a gamble. It isn’t realistic to believe that months of winter means you can neglect your system. That, on top of months of inactivity with your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance difficulties and dirt buildup, especially if there is no arranged tune-up. So why right now? Why is tuning your furnace beneficial? Regular furnace service can help you dodge a number of potential problems during the year, including: Hazardous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace More complicated furnace problems that could lead to possible furnace replacement Reduced efficiency, due to an old furnace A cancelled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time Skipping routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with the Midlands weather is not the greatest option. The best way to think about your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need specific regular maintenance to keep everything running efficiently, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to schedule service is now before you forget!
