Maintaining Your Furnace in the Off-Season

May 16, 2017 | Blog

Maintaining Your Furnace in the Off-SeasonYou might think it’s strange to concentrate on your furnace during the off-season, but by getting things done early, you can protect your home from wasted energy and so much else. What do we suggest you do? Start by following these simple tips:

Contact a Professional

You’re probably aware that you need to have your furnace serviced by an HVAC professional once per year. This will help keep up the system’s energy efficiency while prolonging its lifetime operating cost. The off-season is a great time to do this, because then you’ll be ready to go by the time winter arrives.

Upgrade Your System

Shopping around for a furnace during the off-season means you’ll have plenty of time to make a decision. Only pay attention to systems that are backed by Energy Star, and don’t be afraid to negotiate on the price. Sellers may just be willing to give you a good deal since they’re probably not expecting to sell too many furnaces during this time or year.

Install a Carbon Monoxide Detector

There’s a reason why carbon monoxide is known as “the silent killer.” Installing a detector is no longer a choice if you want to protect your home from potential gas leaks. Even if your furnace is running perfectly thanks to the aforementioned maintenance, you can never be too safe. Already have a CO detector? Then, the off-season is the perfect time to replace the batteries and use the unit’s testing option.

Clean Up the System

You might be surprised at how much debris finds itself into the interior of your furnace. Cleaning it out will ensure that air flow isn’t impeded, which will improve the system’s efficiency. You’ll want to check for burnt out wires, too, so before you begin, be sure to unplug the furnace to avoid any possible danger.

Great Company

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
