Prepare your furnace for colder weather! Winter will soon be here, and while it doesn’t get as cold here in Texas as it does in other parts of the country, cooler temperatures mean your furnace is waiting on deck. One thing you can do now to ensure it’ll work when you need it is to double-check that it’s heating as efficiently as possible. That way, when it does get cold, you and your family will be comfortable and warm.
Schedule Your Winter Maintenance Check
The easiest and most thorough way to check the operational capacity of your furnace is to contact your local heating repair company, like Air Solutions, for a seasonal maintenance check. Our experienced technicians can clean your furnace, change the air filters, and most importantly, check for any leaks or other signs of mechanical trouble. We recommend getting seasonal maintenance at least twice a year to make sure you’re never stuck in the cold without a furnace (or in the heat without the AC).
Furnace Maintenance You Can Do Yourself
● Regularly switch out your air filters. Depending on the brand of air filters you buy, you’ll need to change them every 1 to 3 months. Be sure to check your air filters to see how often you should replace them.
● Stock up on filters in the summer. Typically, you can find furnace filters for a bargain price during the summer months. This way, you’ll always have them on hand when you need them.
● Do you have a gas furnace? If so, have your gas company top off your furnace in the summer when gas is less expensive.
● Clean around your air vents and furnace. Make sure there are no storage bins or household items blocking your furnace or vents. They can be a fire hazard and, if they’re blocking where the heated air comes out, it’ll cost you more to stay comfortable this winter.
