It is officially October in New England and the cold weather is on the horizon. Many New England homes combat the unwelcoming cold climate by using a furnace. Furnaces are responsible for creating heat inside your home and keeping you comfortable during the fall and winter. If your home has a furnace system in place, do not wait until it gets chilly to test out your furnace. The last thing you want to experience is a defunct furnace on one of the coldest days of the year. Here are the best pieces of advice on how to maintain your furnace before the cold weather arrives.
Evaluating the current state of your furnace is half the battle when maintaining your furnace. If you do not know what exactly to look for, do not hesitate to contact a HVAC company to provide assistance. If you have experience inspecting your furnace, look for any typical flaws or shortcomings you typically would.
Clean Or Replace The Filter
A furnaces air filter should be cleaned or replaced at least once a year because filters can get dirty before you know it. A furnaces air filter collects and removes unwanted particles in your home. Nobody wants to be exposed to dust, bacteria, etc. inside their homes. A home’s air quality is essential, especially in times like these. Staying on top of your furnaces filter will create a better living environment for everyone, in addition to making a furnaces life easier.
Clear the Area
There really should not be objects or personal items near a furnace. If this is the case, remove anything near your furnace immediately. Many objects are flammable around a furnace. For the safety of you, your family and your home, always give a furnace plenty of room to operate.
