Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Plover09/02/2015 Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The best 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 switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t forget about that final winter checklist item to make sure that your furnace won’t bring upong any unexpected difficulties this summer and next early fall. Relying on your furnace after months of not using it is always a gamble. It isn’t realistic to believe 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 difficulties and dirt buildup, especially if there is no arranged tune-up. So why right now? Why is tuning your furnace useful? Regular furnace service can help you dodge a number of likely problems throughout the year, including: Unsafe situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace More intricate furnace problems that could create possible furnace replacement Decreased efficiency, due to a wornout furnace A cancelled warranty after sporadic maintenance over time Avoiding routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Plover weather is not the best option. The best way to look at your furnace is to treat it like your car.
