Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The safest way to gear up for any season is to service your furnace now and guarantee 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 disregard that final winter checklist thing to make sure that your furnace won’t create any unexpected issues this summer and next early fall.
Depending on your furnace after months of dormancy 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 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 servicing your furnace beneficial?
Annual furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of potential problems within the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could create impending furnace replacement
- Reduced efficiency, due to an old furnace
- A voided warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Avoiding annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Hattiesburg weather is not the smartest option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need particular routine maintenance to keep everything running efficiently, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to schedule service is now before you forget!
