Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Erie09/02/2015 Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The safest way to prepare for any season is to service your furnace now and ensure that it is all set for when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t disregard 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 inactivity is always a gamble. It isn’t practical to believe that months of winter means you can neglect your system. That, on top of months of inactivity with your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance issues and dirt logjam, especially if there is no arranged tune-up. So why right now? Why is tuning your furnace useful? Regular furnace service can help you avoid a number of likely problems throughout the year, including: Hazardous situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace More complex furnace problems that could lead to potential furnace replacement Decreased efficiency, due to a wornout furnace A voided warranty after a lack of maintenance over time Forgetting annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Erie weather is not the greatest option. The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need particular routine maintenance to keep everything running efficiently, 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!
