Should your Minnesota furnace be serviced in the summer?
While you’re enjoying the cool comfort of your air conditioning, perhaps sipping a nice iced tea, the last thing on your mind is your furnace.
After all, it’s so hot outside, and you certainly aren’t going to need it anytime soon. That makes sense, to a point.
The truth is that cooler weather is only a couple of months off and before you know it, you’ll be wanting a little warmth.
So, you should really be thinking about your furnace now.
There are actually three specific reasons that furnaces in Minnesota should be serviced this summer.
1. No Surprises
Imagine reaching for the thermostat to turn it up just a couple of degrees, only to find that the furnace won’t come on.
That’s the last thing you want to happen, after all, it worked in early spring, and you’ll be forced to call a heating company to fix the problem.
An emergency call will be costly, but it has to be done.
However, if you get your furnace serviced before you need it, you can rest assured it’s in good working order.
All you need to do is turn it on and you’ll be warm and comfortable.
2. Less Expensive
It’s always better to maintain your HVAC equipment properly than it is to have it repaired.
For your furnace, that means having a technician inspect it at least annually. They may find worn out or broken parts that need to be replaced.
If this is done during a service call, your furnace will be less likely to suffer a catastrophic failure.
Should you skip this step, and the furnace quits, you will spend a great deal more money to have it repaired, or replaced, during the busy season, wh it’s cold.
3. Shorter Wait
Later in the season, heating and cooling companies begin to get more frequent phone calls from customers needing furnace services.
If you call in the fall, you may only have to wait a few hours, or you could end up waiting for a day or two with no heating for someone to come out, and fix it.
Since heating your home is not a priority at the moment, waiting a few days this time of the year isn’t so bad.
But, odds are, they’ll get to you faster in the warmer months than when the weather starts to get colder.
