Winter is here! Don’t let Old Man winter catch you or your furnace off guard! The more you prepare for Winter early on before the snow flies, the more you’ll save. Remember, you don’t want to have to call for help because your furnace is on the fritz in the middle of Winter with freezing cold temperatures. You can save yourself a lot of time, trouble, and even money by running through this furnace maintenance checklist for Winter.
No one wants to spend time tending to their furnace and running through a maintenance checklist when they have other things to worry about like snow removal and getting to work on time. Unfortunately, that doesn’t change the fact that you should still make an effort to keep your furnace well-maintained, lest you run into an expensive problem later on.
When you find time to start checking your furnace the first thing you should do is to examine the thermostat. Try changing the thermostat to heating to see if it responds correctly. If there’s nothing wrong with the thermostat, this will be easy to do, if there’s a problem, you’ll need to call a qualified heating service like BEEBE Heating and Air Conditioning.
To check your thermostat, all you have to do is turn up the heat until it exceeds room temperature. Once you’ve done that, you should hear the furnace fire up and kick in, if not, it’s time to call BEEBE Heating and Air Conditioning.
Change the Filter
The next thing you should do when moving through your Winter furnace checklist is to change the filter. When a filter becomes dirty it takes a toll on the furnace and makes it work harder which means it will depreciate much faster than usual and will require repairs at some point. Dirty air filters can cause a furnace to overheat and turn off unexpectedly. That’s not a problem you want to have in the Winter.
Check Your Air Vents
Air vents are essential to the proper function. If there’s anything inside these vents that are in the way, it can disrupt the function of your furnace. As unpleasant as it might sound, you should inspect the vents for obstructions before Winter hits.
If that sounds a bit too arduous for your tastes you might want to consider calling BEEBE Heating and Air Conditioning and having it done for you.
