Not too hot, not too cold... JUST RIGHT
24•7•365 SERVICE NO EXTRA CHARGE
Remember, your furnace has not been used for quite a few months, and you will want to make sure that there are no hidden problems that could pop up out of nowhere when you least expect it. It is always better to verify that the system is working fine now, rather than put it off to a later date. As time passes, the weather will get colder and colder, and you really do not want to have to deal with a heating problem in the dead of winter.
There are certainly some things you can do yourself to get it prepared, but you will need the professionals to take care of other extra maintenance.
Heating is one of the most expensive charges on your electric bill. There are obviously, certain things that you can do that will help your furnace run more efficiently. Doing the following will help to keep things running smoothly and keep your electric bill down this winter.
Many people forget to do this on a regular basis, and it can add up to additional heating costs if the filters are clogged up or dirty. Your furnace cannot run efficiently if your filters are not changed routinely. If you have pets at home, you will need to use denser filters and change them more frequently.
Your heating ducts are responsible for allowing the air to circulate properly throughout your home. If these are clogged with dust, dirt and debris, your system cannot work at peak performance. Be sure to have them inspected for leaks, cracks or broken seals.
Because your heating ducts are usually not seen, many people tend to forget about them. Go throughout your home and make sure that there is nothing blocking the airflow from the vents such as toys, curtains, furniture or rugs.
If you have ceiling fans, change them now to turn in a clockwise rotation because heat rises and this helps to send the heat back down into the room.
These are the things that will keep your furnace running optimally and are best left to the professionals to deal with.
Remember, a little bit of time spent on your HVAC system maintenance now will keep your furnace from playing tricks on you in the months ahead. Make sure that your furnace is in good shape so that you and your family can enjoy your time together in a warm and cozy home this winter.
Call in the professionals today, so that you can enjoy your winter without any unexpected surprises from your heating system.
