Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Scottsboro09/02/2015 Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The safest way to stay ahead of any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and guarantee that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be changing your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t disregard that final winter checklist thing to make sure that your furnace won’t cause you any unforeseen problems this summer and next early fall. Relying on your furnace after months of dormancy is always a wager. It isn’t practical to think 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 difficulties and dirt logjam, especially if there is no planned tune-up. So why right now? Why is checking your furnace useful? Routine furnace service can help you dodge a number of likely problems throughout the year, including: Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace More complicated furnace problems that could create possible furnace replacement Reduced efficiency, due to a wornout furnace A voided warranty after a lack of maintenance over time Forgetting regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Scottsboro weather is not the smartest 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 best time to setup service is now before you forget!
