You can weather out the storms of the upcoming winter season with top notch HVAC maintenance agreements. By keeping your HVAC system running optimally, you will have toasty toes and warm hands throughout the season. Keep reading for some additional steps you can take to get your heating system ready to handle whatever winter throws your way.
The first thing you can do as the temperatures start to drop is switch your thermostat over to heating. After the switch, check to ensure it’s working properly. It should kick on immediately, so if it doesn’t, it’s time to call the HVAC pros.
You can also perform a visual inspection of your heating vents. Toys, furniture, and rugs may be covering the vents. Clear the space completely to ensure your system can do its job.
• Make sure the supply and return registers are in working order.
• Oil your furnace blower.
• Look for obstacles outside, such as bird nests or tree limbs that might be blocking your chimney.
• Change your furnace air filter.
• Install storm windows in place of window screens.
