Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Excelsior Springs09/02/2015 Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The safest way to gear up for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and ensure that it is all set for when it’s needed. Of course, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t disregard that final winter checklist piece to make sure that your furnace won’t cause you any unforeseen difficulties this summer and next early fall. Relying on your furnace after months of not using it is always a gamble. It isn’t sensible 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 issues and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no arranged tune-up. So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace beneficial? Regular furnace service can help you avoid a number of potential problems throughout the year, including: Hazardous situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace More intricate furnace problems that could bring about possible furnace replacement Reduced efficiency, due to an overworked furnace A voided warranty after sporadic maintenance over time Forgetting annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Excelsior Springs weather is not the best option. The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need specific regular maintenance to keep everything operating smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the perfect time to arrange service is now before you forget!
