Test Your Thermostat

Before the weather drops to the point of needing to turn on your heating system, it’s a good idea to give it a test run. Try turning your heat on from your thermostat and let it run for a few minutes, ensuring that hot air begins blowing out of your vents.

Change Your Furnace Filter

Your furnace filter helps to keep dust, allergens, and dirt out of your home’s air, and out of your HVAC system, making it easier to breathe and maximizing the efficiency of your system. Before the winter season begins, check your furnace filter and change it out if necessary.

Clear Space Around Your Furnace

We understand how tempting it can be to use the space around your furnace for storage. However, before you begin using your furnace on a daily basis, it’s important to move those items and clear some space around your furnace, especially if there is anything flammable.

Schedule Furnace Maintenance

Before this winter begins, it’s important to have professional furnace maintenance conducted by an experienced HVAC technician. This will ensure that your furnace and HVAC system are working properly and give you a chance to address any small issues that could cause unexpected problems down the road.
