Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Lodi09/02/2015 Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The safest way to prepare for any season is to perform maintenance on your furnace now and ensure that it is all set for when it’s needed. Of course, 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 make sure that your furnace won’t create any unforeseen issues this summer and next early fall. Depending on your furnace after months of not using it is always a risk. 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 logjam, especially if there is no arranged tune-up. So why right now? Why is tuning your furnace helpful? Regular furnace service can help you dodge a number of likely problems during the year, including: Unsafe situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace More intricate furnace problems that could bring about potential furnace replacement Reduced efficiency, due to an overworked furnace An annulled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time Skipping regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Lodi weather is not the smartest option. The best way to look at your furnace is to treat it like your car.
