The nicest 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. Yes, in a few weeks you will be turning your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t overlook that final winter checklist item to ensure that your furnace won’t create any unexpected difficulties this summer and next early fall. Depending on your furnace after months of dormancy is always a gamble. It isn’t practical to believe that months of winter means you can disregard your system. That, on top of months without using 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 servicing your furnace beneficial? Routine furnace service can help you steer clear from a number of likely problems throughout the year, including: Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace More complex furnace problems that could lead to possible furnace replacement Decreased efficiency, due to an old furnace A voided warranty after a lack of maintenance over time Skipping annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Rapid City weather is not the best option.
