Regularly Check Air Filters
Air filters are key to keeping your air quality top notch and preventing allergens and illnesses. However, they can get clogged with dirt and dust, which makes your furnace work harder to push and pull air through the filters.
These filters are relatively inexpensive and easy to change, but if you need help be sure to give us a call and we’ll be glad to come help.
Clean Your Furnace
You clean your house, the dishes, but what about your furnace? Keeping your furnace clean throughout the winter is key because a dirty furnace won’t be able to provide as much heat as a clean one. Seems simple right?
To keep your energy and heating costs down, be sure to clean the filter, blower, and motor all winter long.
Keep Vents Clean
This tip is an easy one to keep your furnace working properly and your home warm all winter long.
Vents can easily be blocked, which can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. This poisoning can be dangerous and even lethal. Follow these simple tips to keep you safe and your furnace working all winter long.
