It’s always a bad idea it is to wait until you need your heating equipment to check and see if it is working properly. This coming weekend is forecasting temperatures below 30, and I guarantee you our phones will be ringing!
The best thing you can do is be proactive by testing out your furnace now, before there’s a really cold morning and you need it. All you need to do is turn it on, and let it run a cycle.
This simple check can save you a lot of heartache. If your furnace needs repair, the reality is that you will need to make a service call and wait for a technician to get there and diagnose your problem. Then you will wait to get on the schedule for a repair, or, worse, get quotes for replacement costs. If you need to have your system replaced, you might need to wait 2 – 4 weeks for that to be completed.
Don’t wait until its 30-degrees out, your furnace isn’t working, and you are one of 75 emergency calls waiting for a repair! Take 30 minutes to test out your heating system this weekend.
