Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The safest way to stay ahead of any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and make sure 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 overlook that final winter checklist thing to certify that your furnace won’t create any unexpected difficulties this summer and next early fall.
Depending on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a wager. It isn’t sensible 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 accumulation, especially if there is no arranged tune-up.
So why right now? Why is checking your furnace useful?
Annual furnace service can help you dodge a number of possible problems throughout the year, including:
- Hazardous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More complex furnace problems that could create possible furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- A cancelled warranty after irregular maintenance over time
Skipping annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Oxford weather is not the best option.
The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need certain annual maintenance to keep everything operating efficiently, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to setup service is now before you forget!
