Fire Up That Furnace And Start Winterizing Your Home

fall season

Getting your home ready for the winter is easier than you think!

The fall season is finally upon us, which means the temperature outside continues to drop. In fact, this mid-weather season is the perfect time for homeowners to prepare for the frigid temperatures that are on their way! Right now, you can save significantly on your utility bills by cracking the windows open when the weather permits or throwing on a sweatshirt when the temperature gets a bit cooler than average. However, when winter rolls around, no amount of layers will allow you stay comfortable without using a heating unit. Sooner or later that furnace of your will need to be fired up. As a result, you’ll want to make sure that it is working correctly before you actually need it. This autumn, consider hiring a professional to come and take a look at your furnace so that you can rest easy knowing that whenever the first snow comes through, you won’t be left freezing in your own home.

First Time Can Be A Charm

After months and months of inactivity, your furnace will do what everything else in your home does- collect dust. In fact, as you start to use your air conditioner less and less, dust can quickly accumulate in the ducts and vents. As a result, opening windows is a great way to avoid being bothered by the burning of dust once you first fire up that furnace of yours. When you have good circulation, the odor will come and go. However, if the smell lingers for more than a couple of hours, it is probably best to contact a professional for some much-needed assistance.

Change The Filter

A few weeks of minimal HVAC activity can cause homeowners to quickly forget that they need to change the filters regularly. In fact, starting the season off right by merely replacing a dirty filter can really do wonders for your home as you go into the colder months!
