Yes, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t forget about that final winter checklist piece to make sure that your furnace won’t cause you any unforeseen problems this summer and next early fall. Depending on your furnace after months of not using it is always a gamble. It isn’t practical to think that months of winter means you can neglect your system. That, on top of months without using your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance problems and dirt accumulation, especially if there is no planned tune-up. So why right now? Why is tuning your furnace beneficial? Regular furnace service can help you avoid a number of possible problems during the year, including: Unsafe situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace More intricate furnace problems that could create possible furnace replacement Reduced efficiency, due to a wornout furnace A cancelled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time Avoiding regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Utica weather is not the greatest option.
