Is Your Furnace Ready For Winter?

Is Your Furnace Ready For Winter?

The warmer months are officially over and we are moving into winter! Is your home furnace prepared? Don’t wait until a particularly chilly day to turn on your furnace, only to find that something isn’t working!

Your furnace should be maintained regularly and if you haven’t had it checked in a while, now would be the time to schedule an appointment.

Here are some things you can do to prepare your furnace for the cold:

  • Check and change your filters regularly.
  • Switch your thermostat from cooling to heating mode.
  • Make sure burners are free of debris and dust.
  • Check that all heating vents are uncovered and unobstructed.
  • Remove any items stored near the furnace, particularly anything that might catch fire.

Added tip: Switch out your window screens for storm windows (what’s the point of having a perfectly working heating system if you’re just letting all the warm air seep out?).
