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 gear up for any season is to service your furnace now and ensure 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 disregard that final winter checklist item to certify that your furnace won’t create any unexpected problems this summer and next early fall.
Relying on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a risk. 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 accumulation, especially if there is no arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace useful?
Regular furnace service can help you avoid a number of possible problems during the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More complex furnace problems that could lead to impending furnace replacement
- Reduced efficiency, due to an old furnace
- A voided warranty after irregular maintenance over time
Avoiding routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Omaha weather is not the greatest option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need particular 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 greatest time to arrange service is now before you forget!
