With evening temperatures dipping well below freezing, we are in prime territory for furnaces to fail. Here are four tips to keep you and your family as comfy as a cup of hot cocoa:
1) Make sure you have a fresh filter in place for proper air flow. Your furnace will already be working hard, so don’t stifle the airflow with a clogged filter.
2) Higher thermostat settings don’t lead to greater comfort in extremely cold weather. Keep your thermostat at a moderate temperature like 68-70 degrees. Bumping it higher only increases the workload on your system as it works to reach a temperature it may never hit, while driving your energy bills through the roof.
3) If you haven’t had a tune-up or professional maintenance in a while, now is the time. An inexpensive heating tune-up now can prevent a major repair down the road and extend the life of your system. You don’t want your furnace failing in the middle of the night. Hot tip: Get $40 off any maintenance plan when you call 770-271-7511 and mention this post.
4) For the ultimate peace of mind, consider our System Care Program and never pay for repairs again.
