It’s Not Too Late for Furnace Maintenance!

Monday, December 27th, 2021

If you’re playing any kind of sport or physical activity, it’s important to do some stretches and to stay hydrated. If you skipped that at the beginning of the game, it’s not ideal, but you can always do some stretches and drink water at halftime, or even at the end of the game, to make sure you’re staying healthy and safe.

Think of furnace maintenance as stretching and hydration for your furnace while it does physical activity. Without it, things can get dangerous, and your furnace and start breaking down. And even if you skipped it when it was ideal (like this fall), it’s never too late to invest in it now.

Furnace Maintenance? Now?

Monday, March 8th, 2021

Yes absolutely. Well, let us explain first.

Maintenance for your furnace is probably something you associate with the fall—and for good reason! Fall is a slower season for our team and it’s also when temperatures are mild enough to not need the full power of your furnace system. You’ve got plenty of time in the fall to schedule maintenance and relax when your system calls for repairs as well. However, if you missed maintenance in the fall, it’s not the end of the world.

Sure, springtime might not be an ideal time to invest in maintenance for your furnace in Sewell, NJ, but it’s better than not getting maintenance at all. Skipping maintenance will result in lower efficiency, more frequent repairs, and a shortened system lifespan. You’re better off calling us for maintenance now, even as you’re taking your air conditioner out of hiatus for another summer!
