Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Rocky Mount09/02/2015 Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The best way to gear up for any season is to service your furnace now and make sure that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Of course, in a few weeks you will be changing your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist item to certify that your furnace won’t create any sudden issues this summer and next early fall. Relying on your furnace after months of dormancy is always a wager. It isn’t practical to trust that months of winter means you can neglect your system. That, on top of months not using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance difficulties and dirt buildup, especially if there is no planned tune-up. So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace beneficial? Regular furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of potential problems during the year, including: Hazardous situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace More complex furnace problems that could lead to possible furnace replacement Lowered efficiency, due to a wornout furnace A cancelled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time Skipping annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Rocky Mount weather is not the best option. The best way to think about your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need specific routine maintenance to keep everything operating smoothly, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the perfect time to arrange service is now before you forget!
