Heating Guide: Getting Your Furnace Ready for Winter

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

With the coldest time of year approaching it is important that your Savannah furnace is ready for the job ahead. Don’t wait for the first chilly night to discover that your heating system is not ready to provide the heating performance you need. Take the following step to ensure that, when the temperature drops, your furnace is ready.

  • Check to see when last your furnace was serviced. If your furnace has not received professional maintenance service in the past year, schedule a visit right away. There’s no better way to ensure that your furnace is in ideal working order before the cold arrives.
  • Check your vents and return registers. Make sure that there are no obstructions that may reduce air flow. The harder it is for air to be distributed throughout your home, the harder your furnace has to work to keep you warm. This leads to inefficient, ineffective performance and can put unnecessary wear and tear on your system.
  • Clean or replace your filters. Dirty air filters also obstruct air flow, forcing your system to work harder than necessary, and can reintroduce pollutants into the air in your home.
  • Perform a quick visual inspection of any exposed electrical wiring. Frayed or broken wires must be replaced by a professional in order to allow for effective, safe operation of your home heating system.
  • Clear the area surrounding your furnace. A crowded area can affect the efficiency of your furnace and makes for unsafe operating conditions.
  • Make sure your burner is clean. Dust and debris can settle in the burner during periods of inactivity. A clean burner allows for safe, effective operation.

With professional maintenance and routine care your furnace will keep you and your family warm on the coldest nights of the year. Make sure that your furnace is prepared to keep your home warm in an efficient, effective manner. Keep your furnace and registers free of obstruction, change your filter regularly, and call a Savannah heating service professional such as AAction Air for high quality, dependable maintenance.
