Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Raceland09/02/2015 Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The best way to stay ahead of any season is to service your furnace now and ensure that it is all set for when it’s needed. Yes, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist piece to ensure that your furnace won’t cause you any unexpected issues this summer and next early fall. Depending on your furnace after months of dormancy is always a wager. It isn’t realistic to trust that months of winter means you can neglect 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 arranged tune-up. So why right now? Why is checking your furnace beneficial? Annual furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of possible problems during the year, including: Dangerous situations with gas or oil trouble in your furnace More complex furnace problems that could create possible furnace replacement Decreased efficiency, due to an overworked furnace A cancelled warranty after irregular maintenance over time Skipping regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Raceland weather is not the smartest option. The best way to think about your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need particular regular maintenance to keep everything running correctly, 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!
