1. Change Your Air Filter
Furnace filters need to be changed about every 1-4 months – more regularly depending on the filter quality and if you have pets in your home. This ensures your furnace gets adequate air and ventilation.
2. Clean Your Air Vents And Ducts
This is the best way to preserve the air quality in your home this winter. Your ducts can collect dust and debris, and even micro-organisms like mold and mildew.
3. Check Your Vents
If you haven’t been using your heater for a while, some of your vents may be obstructed by drapes, furniture, and other items. Make sure they’ve cleared away.
4. Test Your Thermostat
Raise your thermostat to make sure that it’s working properly. In addition, switch it from “cool” to “heat”, if your thermostat is a dual-function model.
Over time, thermostats can become less accurate, so you may want to replace it if it seems like it is reading the temperature incorrectly, as this can cost you more money on your heating bills.
5. Get An Inspection And Tune-Up
Before you turn your furnace on in the fall, you need a furnace inspection from a professional, to ensure that your furnace is safe, efficient, and operating properly.
