Whether we want it to or not, it’s coming...colder weather. So, the question is, is your heating system prepared to help you fend off the chill? Getting it in tip-top shape now can help avoid problems down the road.
Be filter friendly – The easiest thing to do is to make sure your furnace filter is ready for the job. Change it or clean it according to manufacturer’s instructions. A clean filter helps reduce the workload of your unit, saving energy and money.
Don’t block the flow – Make sure radiators, registers and baseboard heaters are clean and are not obstructed by other objects, such as furniture.
Call the pros – Now is a good time to have a trained professional give your system a thorough tune-up. You’ll have peace of mind knowing all the working parts are up to snuff and ready for Old Man Winter’s upcoming visit.
If you’re considering upgrading to a new heating system, we recommend getting an ENERGY STAR® certified model. The significant energy-efficiency savings over time will more than offset any higher upfront cost.
