Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in McHenry09/02/2015 Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The safest way to stay ahead of any season is to service your furnace now and make sure that it is all set for when it’s needed. Yes, in a few weeks you will be changing your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist piece to ensure that your furnace won’t create any unforeseen issues this summer and next early fall. Depending on your furnace after months of not using it is always a risk. It isn’t sensible to trust 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 difficulties and dirt buildup, especially if there is no planned tune-up. So why right now? Why is checking your furnace helpful? Routine furnace service can help you avoid a number of potential problems within the year, including: Hazardous situations with gas or oil trouble in your furnace More complicated furnace problems that could bring about potential furnace replacement Lowered efficiency, due to a wornout furnace A voided warranty after sporadic maintenance over time Forgetting annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with McHenry weather is not the smartest option. The best way to think about your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need certain routine maintenance to keep everything running smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifetime of your car would lower.
