Fall is officially here, and the beautiful weather signals much cooler temperatures right around the corner.
Here are a few tips to make sure your home is ready for heating season. With families like yours spending more time at home than ever, be sure to take these precautions now before your system is competing with freezing temperatures later.
1. Change your air filter.
You should swap your filters every 60 days, or every 30 days if you have pets who shed. A clean filter keeps air flowing effortlessly through your system, instead of a dirty filter clogging your system.
2. Turn your heating system on.
Turn on your heating system and check your vents to make sure it’s blowing warm air. Remember, if it hasn’t been on in a while there might be a light burning smell. That’s typically just dust that settled in your system since it was last used.
3. Make sure the area around your furnace is clean.
Lint and dust around your furnace can be a hazard. Plus, move any boxes, cleaning supplies or materials that could impede air flow or become hazardous. Keep 2 feet of clearance around the system for safety and easy access.
