Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Carlsbad09/02/2015 Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to overlook your furnace until next winter. The safest way to prepare for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and make sure that it is all set for when it’s needed. Of course, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist thing to ensure that your furnace won’t bring upong any sudden difficulties this summer and next early fall. Trusting your furnace after months of dormancy is always a risk. It isn’t sensible 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 buildup, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up. So why right now? Why is servicing your furnace useful? Regular furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of likely problems throughout the year, including: Hazardous situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace More complicated furnace problems that could create impending furnace replacement Lowered efficiency, due to a wornout furnace A cancelled warranty after irregular maintenance over time Forgetting routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Carlsbad weather is not the best option. The best way to look at your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need particular routine maintenance to keep everything running 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 schedule service is now before you forget!
