Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Colfax09/02/2015 Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The best way to stay ahead of any season is to tune up your furnace now and ensure that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Yes, 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 certify that your furnace won’t create any unforeseen problems this summer and next early fall. Depending on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a wager. It isn’t realistic to think 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 issues and dirt logjam, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up. So why right now? Why is tuning your furnace useful? Regular furnace service can help you avoid a number of potential problems throughout the year, including: Hazardous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace More intricate furnace problems that could lead to possible furnace replacement Decreased efficiency, due to an overworked furnace An annulled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time Skipping routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Colfax weather is not the best option. The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car. Vehicles always need certain regular maintenance to keep everything running correctly, and without this maintenance, the lifespan of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to setup service is now before you forget!
