Fall & winter is one of the most expensive times of year for homeowners, but you can prepare for this upcoming season with these five tips. Get your furnace ready to stay ahead of the season by contacting Air Management today!
1. Replace your filter.
Over the span of a year, your furnace filter can become clogged with dust, hair, and other debris. If the filter is blocked, your furnace will have to work harder and your house won’t be as warm. Depending on your filter type, you should change or clean it every four to six weeks.
2. Clear your vents.
If your floor or wall vents are blocked by furniture or heavy drapes, this can restrict the airflow to the room. Rearrange your furniture to ensure that the vents aren’t blocked and check them for hair, pet fur, and other obstructions.
3. Install storm windows.
Your windows might already have built in storm windows. If they don’t, you might consider replacing your screens with storm windows to keep in the heat during the cold winter weather.
4. Check your thermostat.
Older thermostats don’t always accurately read the temperature or keep your furnace running efficiently. Test it to ensure that it’s working correctly, and consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat to up your efficiency.
5. Schedule a tune-up.
HVAC Systems require more maintenance than you might think. Scheduling a furnace tune up in early fall is the best way to avoid a costly mid-winter breakdown. Our technicians can take preventive measures to guarantee that your furnace is in good health as the temperature drops.
