Did you know that just a few minutes of heating maintenance can go a long way? Taking a few minutes to get your furnace ready for winter can make the difference between a winter full of heating repairs and one where you don’t have any. Here’s what you can do right now to ensure that your furnace is working optimally to keep your home comfortable this winter.

  • Clear your vents. If any vents are full of debris or covered, it doesn’t matter how much warm air your furnace blows because it won’t get where you want it. Move curtains, trash cans, furniture, and anything else that might block the vents until they are completely clear. You may also want to ensure that debris and dust haven’t gathered in or near your vents because these can hinder airflow, too.
  • Replace your filter. Even if you don’t do anything else, you can change out your furnace filter. These need to be changed regularly, anywhere from once each month to twice a year, depending on your system and how often you run it. When your filter is dirty, the furnace has to work harder than normal to acquire clean air to heat. This can make it heat poorly or burn out prematurely. If you’re smart, you can be proactive now and purchase several filters so they are ready for you to use them when you need them.
  • Check burners and blowers. Dust and debris can build up inside the furnace. Gently remove as much of it as possible because it can become a fire hazard. It can also cause problems that will need to be repaired later on, too. You may also choose to ensure that your burner gets aligned correctly and that your blower gets oiled so the furnace motor will run smoothly.
  • Schedule professional furnace maintenance. The very best way to ensure that you get the furnace maintenance you require is to call our team and schedule an appointment now.
