Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Lexington09/02/2015 Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The best way to prepare for any season is to tune up your furnace now and make sure that it is prepared when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist piece to certify that your furnace won’t bring upong any unexpected problems this summer and next early fall. Relying on 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 neglect your system. That, on top of months of inactivity with your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance issues and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no planned tune-up. So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace helpful? Annual furnace service can help you dodge a number of possible problems within the year, including: Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace More complicated furnace problems that could bring about possible furnace replacement Decreased efficiency, due to an old furnace A cancelled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time Avoiding routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Lexington weather is not the greatest option. The best way to consider your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need specific annual maintenance to keep everything working smoothly, and without this maintenance, the lifetime of your car would be reduced. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to setup service is now before you forget!
