Preparing Your Furnace for Winter

Colder weather is right around the corner, and according to studies, you can save up to $30 a month on your utility bill by making sure that your air conditioning and heating systems are cleaned and serviced regularly. Proactive maintenance means that when you flip your furnace on, you will be ready to enjoy the heat, instead of addressing preventable problems.  

Tip to maintaining your furnace include: 

  • Clean or replace filters on furnaces once a month or as needed.
  • Set your thermostat as low as is comfortable in the winter. This will reduce the amount your heater turns on and off while no one is home, saving you money and your furnace unneeded exertion.
  • Clean warm-air registers, baseboard heaters, and radiators as needed; make sure they are not blocked by furniture, carpeting, or drapes.
  • During the winter months, keep the draperies and shades on your south-facing windows open during the day to allow the sunlight to enter your home and closed at night to reduce the chill you may feel from cold windows.
