Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Belton09/02/2015 Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The safest way to stay ahead of any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and guarantee that it is prepared when it’s needed. Of course, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist thing to make sure that your furnace won’t create any unforeseen issues this summer and next early fall. Trusting your furnace after months of dormancy is always a wager. It isn’t realistic to believe that months of winter means you can disregard your system. That, on top of months not using 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 tuning your furnace helpful? Annual furnace service can help you dodge a number of likely problems throughout the year, including: Unsafe situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace More intricate furnace problems that could create potential furnace replacement Lowered efficiency, due to an overworked furnace A voided warranty after sporadic maintenance over time Avoiding annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Belton weather is not the greatest option. The best way to consider your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need specific routine maintenance to keep everything operating efficiently, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would be reduced. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to schedule service is now before you forget!
