Scheduled maintenance is cost effective and can save the headache of a sudden breakdown.
Replace the air filter in your furnace. Ensure the power switch for the furnace is turned on before the heating season. (We get a few calls each year where this is the reason their furnace isn’t working) Ensure the thermostat mode is set to heat and batteries are replaced if necessary. Remove any vent covers and vacuum the dust from the air vents and ducts. If you have a high efficient furnace with an exhaust flue that exits to the outside through the wall, make sure it’s free of debris to ensure proper operation. Depending on the type of furnace you own; you may need to light the pilot light. Refer to your manual or look for instructions on the appliance on how to light the pilot light. Please remember to keep flammable objects away from your furnace and remove clutter blocking airflow from the vents.
