Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The safest way to prepare for any season is to perform maintenance on 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 piece to make sure that your furnace won’t bring upong any unexpected difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Relying on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a gamble. It isn’t realistic to think 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 logjam, especially if there is no arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is tuning your furnace helpful?
Regular furnace service can help you dodge a number of likely problems throughout the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More complicated furnace problems that could lead to impending furnace replacement
- Decreased efficiency, due to a wornout furnace
- A voided warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Skipping routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Des Moines weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to think about your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need certain routine maintenance to keep everything working efficiently, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to arrange service is now before you forget!
