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!
