Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The nicest way to stay ahead of any season is to tune up your furnace now and make sure that it is prepared when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t forget about that final winter checklist thing to ensure that your furnace won’t cause you any unforeseen issues this summer and next early fall.
Trusting your furnace after months of not using it is always a risk. It isn’t practical to think 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 logjam, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace helpful?
Regular furnace service can help you dodge a number of potential problems during 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
- An annulled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time
Skipping regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Pacheco weather is not the smartest option.
The best way to look at your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need specific annual maintenance to keep everything operating smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to schedule service is now before you forget!
