Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Keokuk09/02/2015 Just because winter is almost over 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 service your furnace now and make sure that it is all set for when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t disregard that final winter checklist thing to certify that your furnace won’t create 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 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 issues and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up. So why right now? Why is checking your furnace useful? Annual furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of possible problems during the year, including: Dangerous situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace More complex furnace problems that could create impending furnace replacement Reduced efficiency, due to an old furnace A voided warranty after sporadic maintenance over time Forgetting regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Keokuk weather is not the smartest option. The best way to consider your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need certain regular maintenance to keep everything working correctly, and without this maintenance, the lifetime of your car would lower. It’s the same for your furnace, and the greatest time to schedule service is now before you forget!
