Cooler days are now here, and cold days are right around the corner. It feels like we just turned off our air conditioners, but now is time to consider our heaters. As the seasons pass, dirt and dust accumulate and wear down your furnace. Since a clean furnace runs better than a dirty one,a yearly cleaning is always recommended. This cleaning will also decrease the chances of harmful debris damaging your heating system. Most HVAC technicians recommend performing this annual check up in the fall, if possible. If you do it early, you will have enough time to take care of any possible problems before the really cold weather comes.
Homeowners can check some of the simpler things themselves. Such things include:
- Making sure the furnace has power
- Making sure the thermostat is properly set on heat
- Making sure the thermostat batteries are in good condition (for those that have them)
- Making sure your air filter is clean
