Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Olathe09/02/2015 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 prepare for any season is to service your furnace now and guarantee that it is prepared when it’s needed. Yes, in a few weeks you will be changing your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist piece to ensure that your furnace won’t create any sudden difficulties this summer and next early fall. Relying on your furnace after months of dormancy is always a gamble. It isn’t sensible to think that months of winter means you can disregard your system. That, on top of months not using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance difficulties and dirt logjam, especially if there is no scheduled tune-up. So why right now? Why is checking your furnace helpful? Routine furnace service can help you dodge a number of possible problems during the year, including: Unsafe situations with gas or oil trouble in your furnace More intricate furnace problems that could bring about impending furnace replacement Reduced efficiency, due to an old furnace A cancelled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time Skipping regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Olathe weather is not the greatest option. The best way to think about your furnace is to regard it like your car. Vehicles always need certain annual maintenance to keep everything running correctly, and without this maintenance, the longevity of your car would decrease. It’s the same for your furnace, and the best time to setup service is now before you forget!
