Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Bossier City09/02/2015 Just because winter is nearing its end doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The best way to stay ahead of any season is to tune up your furnace now and make sure 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 overlook that final winter checklist item to ensure that your furnace won’t cause you any unforeseen problems this summer and next early fall. Depending on your furnace after months of inactivity is always a wager. It isn’t practical to trust that months of winter means you can neglect your system. That, on top of months not using 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 servicing your furnace beneficial? Annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of likely problems throughout the year, including: Dangerous situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace More complex furnace problems that could create potential furnace replacement Reduced efficiency, due to a wornout furnace A cancelled warranty after irregular maintenance over time Skipping routine furnace service and leaving it to chance with Bossier City weather is not the smartest option. The best way to consider your furnace is to treat it like your car.
