Temperatures are finally cooling down here in Texas, which means when it comes to your HVAC system, it’s time to dust off your furnace that you probably haven’t used in months to make sure it is running smoothly. Checking your furnace now for any problems now can save you the hassle of being without heat when it gets chilly. Plus you can double check its energy-efficiency to ensure your home is heated comfortably without breaking the bank.
Contact a Heating Repair Company for Seasonal Maintenance
One of the best ways to ensure your furnace is functioning properly is to contact your local heating and air conditioning company, like Long AC, to schedule a seasonal maintenance appointment. During a routine seasonal maintenance check, our highly-trained HVAC technicians will change your air filters, clean your furnace, and ensure that your system is working like it should. Regularly scheduled maintenance can extend the life of your HVAC system and can help ensure that you’re never stuck in the middle of winter without heat.
How to Check and Maintain Your Own Furnace
- Replace your air filters regularly. Some brands require you to change them every month, while others can last up to three months. Be sure to check the filter’s manufacturer label for how often you should replace them.
- Purchase your furnace filters in the summer. Often, these filters go on sale during the warmer months. If you stock up while it’s still hot out, you’ll pay less than if you purchase them once it’s already cold.
- Tidy up around your vents and furnace, making sure there are no items blocking air flow or just waiting to become a fire starter. Clearing away furniture and other household items from your vents will allow heated air to circulate more freely, keeping your heating costs down.
- If you have a gas furnace, be sure to have your gas company fill your furnace when it’s warm and gas costs less.
