We’re moving into heating season, which means your furnace is going to be put under more strain than it normally is. More strain equals more wear and tear, which causes more problems for the system over time. If you want to keep your furnace in the best possible condition through the heating season, there are a few things you can do. Read on to find out more.
Schedule Preventive Maintenance
Of all the various things you could do to prepare your home for the cold weather, heating maintenance is perhaps one of the most important. Preventive heating maintenance gives your technician the opportunity to isolate problem areas and deal with them early. This prevents problems from developing and damaging the system. Preventive maintenance doesn’t prevent all problems, or make your furnace last forever. However, it can keep the system in good condition for a number of years longer than it otherwise would. It’s always a good idea to schedule preventive furnace maintenance during the fall season, right before the system starts to experience added stress.
Call for Repairs Promptly
As we’ve said above, even annual preventive maintenance isn’t able to prevent any and all problems from occurring. There’s a good chance that at some point a problem will occur between maintenance appointments. When that happens, it’s best that you call for repairs as soon as possible. It doesn’t matter how small the furnace issue may seem; heating problems grow worse the longer they are left alone. The faster we can get to your furnace and repair it, the better off it will be.
