Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Middletown09/02/2015 Just because winter is coming to a close doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The safest way to stay ahead of any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and guarantee 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 item to certify that your furnace won’t cause you any unexpected difficulties this summer and next early fall. Relying on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a gamble. It isn’t realistic to think 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 difficulties and dirt buildup, especially if there is no planned tune-up. So why right now? Why is tuning your furnace helpful? Regular furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of likely problems during the year, including: Unsafe situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace More complicated furnace problems that could bring about impending furnace replacement Lowered efficiency, due to an old furnace An annulled warranty after irregular maintenance over time Skipping regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Middletown weather is not the greatest option. The best way to look at your furnace is to look at it like your car.
