3 Ways to Prepare Your Furnace for Winter

There are ways you can start preparing your furnace for the cold weather now. When you do preparations, you could be able to prevent a much larger problem from happening. Here are some ways you can prepare your furnace for the cold winter months ahead.

Simply Turn It On

The quickest way to determine if your furnace requires maintenance is by turning it on. After all, you haven’t used it for quite a long time. If it starts working immediately, then your furnace is most likely safe. However, if it takes a while to turn on or doesn’t at all, give us a call.

Change Your Air Filter

You might often forget to replace your air filter. With this in mind, you must remember to replace it at least every two months. If you find that your home’s air is more stuffy than usual, check to see how messy your air filter is. A new one could make a big difference! 

Clean Your Unit

As you might not have had any use for your furnace in a few months, it could use some TLC. A cleaning could help restore your unit to normal after a period of inactivity. You can clean your furnace using a damp cloth with mild soap as well as a light brush. If you find that your unit requires more extensive cleaning, we can help.

Schedule an Inspection with Chatham Comfort Controls
