Too Soon? Think Again – Now is the Time for Furnace Service in Portland Metro09/02/2015 Just because winter is almost over doesn’t mean that it’s time to disregard your furnace until next winter. The safest way to gear up for any season is to tune up your furnace now and make sure that it is ready to go when it’s needed. Sure, in a few weeks you will be switching your thermostat off from the ‘heat’ setting, but don’t disregard that final winter checklist item to make sure that your furnace won’t bring upong any unforeseen difficulties this summer and next early fall. Trusting your furnace after months of not using it is always a risk. It isn’t realistic to think that months of winter means you can neglect your system. That, on top of months of inactivity with your furnace in the summer, can cause maintenance issues and dirt buildup, especially if there is no planned tune-up. So why right now? Why is checking your furnace useful? Annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of likely problems within the year, including: Unsafe situations with gas or oil issues in your furnace More complicated furnace problems that could create impending furnace replacement Reduced efficiency, due to a wornout furnace A voided warranty after sporadic maintenance over time Avoiding regular furnace service and leaving it to chance with Portland Metro weather is not the greatest option.
