The nicest way to gear up for any season is to service your furnace now and make sure that it is ready to go when it’s needed.

Why is servicing your furnace beneficial? Annual furnace service can help you avoid a number of likely problems during the year, including: Dangerous situations with gas or oil problems in your furnace More intricate furnace problems that could bring about potential furnace replacement Decreased efficiency, due to an overworked furnace A cancelled warranty after a lack of maintenance over time Forgetting annual furnace service and leaving it to chance with Winchester weather is not the best option.
