Do you remember how it feels when it starts to get cold? Around mid-October nowadays we need to periodically turn on our heater as the weather gets chilly. Cooler mornings and evenings. For us to be able to use our heater we need to first make sure it is in an operable condition.
There are a few things that you can do yourself to maintain your furnace and there are a few things that needs to be completed by an HVAC professional.
- It is important to schedule for a check-up in the fall to have professional furnace preventative maintenance completed.
- If your thermostat is programmable, then it is important to set up your schedules to meet your heating budget while keeping your comfort.
- It is wise to open all your vents and registers throughout your home to ensure there is adequate flow through the ducts.
- This one is simple. Change your air filter. It’s a good idea to check your filter on a monthly basis during winter just in case it needs a change sooner than the manufacturer’s recommended interval. Sometimes the filter can get dirtier faster depending on specific circumstances.
