Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The nicest way to prepare for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and guarantee that it is all set for when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t disregard that final winter checklist item 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 inactivity is always a gamble. It isn’t realistic to believe 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 arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace beneficial?
Routine furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of potential problems within the year, including:
- Unsafe situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More intricate furnace problems that could create impending furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- An annulled warranty after irregular maintenance over time
Forgetting regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Des Moines weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need certain regular maintenance to keep everything working smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to setup service is now before you forget!
