With winter right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about preparing your furnace for the colder New Jersey months. In this blog post from Climate Mechanics in Cinnaminson, we are going to discuss a few things that you’ll want to put on your to-do list before the winter rolls in. Read on to learn more, and if you’re in need of furnace maintenance, furnace repair, furnace installation, or a duct cleaning, give us a call today.

ceiling fan

Reverse Your Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are not just for the summer. However, you must change their direction in order to get the most out of them. Before the winter begins, change your fans to rotate clockwise. This will draw up the cool air and force the warm air down, helping you and your family to stay warm.


Check Your Furnace Filter

If you’d like your furnace to run as efficiently as possible this winter, make sure you change out your furnace filter before the season begins. The filter catches dust, dirt, pet hair, and other debris and allergens. This not only keeps them out of your air, increasing your indoor air quality, but also out of your HVAC system, ultimately maximizing the life of your system. Additionally, an HVAC system that has clean filters does not have to work as hard to blow warm air into your home, saving you money on your monthly energy bills.

carbon monoxide detector

Check Your Carbon Monoxide Detectors

While you should be having your furnace maintained by a professional to ensure it’s running properly, it’s still a good idea to check your carbon monoxide detectors before winter begins. If your furnace isn’t being vented properly, it can cause carbon monoxide to build up in your home, which can be dangerous and even cause death at high levels. Since during the winter months, you are more likely to keep the windows and doors closed while the furnace controls the indoor air temperature, it’s a good time to make sure your carbon monoxide detectors are in working order.

air duct cleaning

Schedule a Duct Cleaning

If you haven’t had your ducts cleaned in a while, or ever, you’ll be surprised at what could be hiding in there. Ducts collect all types of dirt, dust, pet hair, and other debris and allergens. During the winter months, all of your indoor air is being run through your ducts on a constant basis, so it’s extremely important to have them cleaned professionally.
