Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The nicest way to gear up for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and guarantee that it is all set for when it’s needed. Of course, in a few weeks you will be changing your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t forget about that final winter checklist thing to ensure that your furnace won’t bring upong any unexpected problems this summer and next early fall.
Relying on your furnace after months of dormancy is always a risk. It isn’t sensible to think that months of winter means you can forget about your system. That, on top of months not 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 checking your furnace useful?
Regular furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of likely problems during the year, including:
- Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace
- More complicated furnace problems that could bring about possible furnace replacement
- Lowered efficiency, due to an overworked furnace
- A cancelled warranty after sporadic maintenance over time
Avoiding routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Beaverton weather is not the smartest option.
The best way to think about your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need specific regular maintenance to keep everything running smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifetime of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to schedule service is now before you forget! If you want to learn more about what the team at Garoken Energy Co.
