Get Furnace Maintenance and Tune-up before the winter!

It’s time to turn on your furnace as winter approaches and the temperature drops below 18°-10 C. The ideal home temperature for winter is above 15 degrees to achieve the best seasonal home comfort. Let’s be honest, the warmer, the better. However, before getting your furnace started for the first time, there are a few things you should do to make sure it’s ready for the winter temperatures. So, make sure your furnace is in good working order. 

Our Furnace Maintenace experts will make sure your furnace is prepared for the winter 

  • Check to see if the furnace engine is running smoothly. 
  • Check what type of oil should be used to keep the furnace engine lubricated. 
  • Test the ignitor in the furnace to ensure it is working properly. 
  • Examine the exhaust fan on the furnace. 
  • Clean the condensate drain on your gas furnace. 
  • Know how to check for carbon monoxide in your home. 
  • Set the thermostat to the winter setting.

Know how often you should replace your furnace filter. 

For homeowners, this is a very simple and inexpensive task. Simply turn off your furnace, remove the filter from the blower, and clean it as needed. 

This is something you should perform at least once every three months, not just when your furnace first turns on.
