Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Midlothian09/02/2015 Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The safest way to prepare for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and guarantee that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be changing your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist thing to make sure that your furnace won’t cause you any unforeseen difficulties 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 disregard 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 tuning your furnace helpful? Routine furnace service can help you avoid a number of possible problems throughout the year, including: Unsafe situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace More complicated furnace problems that could create potential furnace replacement Reduced efficiency, due to an overworked furnace A voided warranty after a lack of maintenance over time Avoiding routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Midlothian weather is not the greatest option. The best way to look at your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need specific annual maintenance to keep everything running smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to setup service is now before you forget!
