Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Augusta09/02/2015 Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to forget about your furnace until next winter. The best way to stay ahead of any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and guarantee 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 piece to certify that your furnace won’t cause you any sudden problems this summer and next early fall. Relying on your furnace after months of not using it is always a gamble. It isn’t realistic to trust that months of winter means you can neglect your system. That, on top of months without using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance problems and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no planned tune-up. So why right now? Why is tuning your furnace beneficial? Regular furnace service can help you dodge a number of possible problems within the year, including: Hazardous situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace More complex furnace problems that could create potential furnace replacement Decreased efficiency, due to an old furnace A voided warranty after irregular maintenance over time Avoiding regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Augusta weather is not the greatest option. The best way to look at your furnace is to look at it like your car. Vehicles always need specific routine maintenance to keep everything working correctly, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to setup service is now before you forget!
