Furnace Maintenance Tips for Winter

Winter is coming and there is no way to stop it! Instead of fighting this change, it is better to prepare for it. Brace yourself for the chilly months ahead by maintaining your furnace for the winter. Below are some tips that will keep you warm all season long.

Replace Your Air Filters
You should check your air filters every 30 days in the fall and winter months. If your air filter looks dirty, it is a good idea to change it. In addition, it is also a good time of year to stock up on furnace air filters.

Refill Your Gas Furnaces
Do you have a gas furnace? If so, you will need enough gas to get you through the winter, Otherwise, your furnace will run out of fuel to power itself, and you’ll be stuck in the cold. Be sure to call your gas company sooner rather than later to request a refill.

Check Your Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Unfortunately, furnaces can leak an odorless but deadly gas called carbon monoxide. Inhaling carbon monoxide is detrimental to your health. To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, have carbon monoxide detectors installed in your home. If you already have the detectors, be sure to change their batteries.
