Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The best way to prepare for any season is to tune up your furnace now and guarantee that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Yes, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t forget about that final winter checklist piece to ensure that your furnace won’t bring upong any sudden problems this summer and next early fall.
Depending on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a gamble. It isn’t realistic to trust 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 scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace helpful?
Routine furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of possible problems during the year, including:
- Unsafe situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could bring about potential furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- A cancelled warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Skipping routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Manassas weather is not the best option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need specific annual maintenance to keep everything working correctly, 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!
