Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Longview09/02/2015 Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The nicest way to gear up for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and ensure that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Yes, in a few weeks you will be changing 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 difficulties this summer and next early fall. Trusting your furnace after months of inactivity is always a wager. It isn’t realistic to believe that months of winter means you can neglect your system. That, on top of months without using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance issues and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up. So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace beneficial? Routine furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of possible problems throughout the year, including: Dangerous situations with gas or oil trouble in your furnace More complex furnace problems that could bring about impending furnace replacement Reduced efficiency, due to an old furnace A voided warranty after irregular maintenance over time Forgetting regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Longview weather is not the best option. The best way to think about your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need certain routine maintenance to keep everything running correctly, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the perfect time to schedule service is now before you forget!
