With the average daily temperatures reaching as high as 88oF here in Georgia (100oF in some areas, particularly Phoenix and Las Vegas), it is so easy for people to put their heater in the back of their minds. Winter is still a few months away so why worry about it now? You can always put it off for later, right? There is still enough time for you to ensure that your furnace is doing great. Well, sorry to burst your bubble but if you want to avoid any unpleasant surprises, you need to have your furnace inspected well before winter arrives. Just because you haven’t used it for several months doesn’t mean that nothing can go wrong. In fact, your heater is more likely to underperform when you turn it on for the first time at the start of the winter season. You wouldn’t want to find out that your heater is not working when the first cold day hits, would you?
