Get Your System Ready for Cold Weather

Fall is just around the corner, which means now is a good time to make sure your furnace is working properly.

Here’s a couple of helpful tips for the transition from cooling to heating your house.

Change Your Filters!
This should be done with the change of any season. Most filters should be changed every 3 months. Be sure to regularly check for filter for buildup of debris, dirt, and pollen. If you have been using your system a lot or have had construction recently done on your home, it is extremely important to make sure you have a clean filter. A dirty filter can shut down an entire system.

Test Out Your System
Turn your furnace on for thirty minutes before it gets cold just to make sure everything is running as it should. Be sure to pay attention for strange noises and short cycles, where it runs for 5-10 minutes before shutting off.
