Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Beaverton09/02/2015 Just because winter is coming to a close 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 disregard that final winter checklist item to make sure that your furnace won’t bring upong any unforeseen issues this summer and next early fall. Trusting your furnace after months of not using it is always a risk. It isn’t sensible to believe 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 problems 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 throughout the year, including: Unsafe situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace More intricate furnace problems that could bring about potential furnace replacement Lowered efficiency, due to an overworked furnace A cancelled warranty after irregular maintenance over time Skipping 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 routine maintenance to keep everything operating smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan 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 hear more about what the team at Garoken Energy Co.
