Winter Maintenance to Complete Now

Winter Maintenance to Complete Now

On the East Coast, temperatures are finally beginning to fall after an unseasonably warm autumn. Because of this, many homeowners may have let their winter HVAC maintenance fall by the wayside. However, this maintenance is essential to preserve the life of your system. Follow this checklist of important winter maintenance tasks so you can enjoy warmth all season long:

  1. Replace Your Furnace Air Filter.

This is simple, requires no tools or expertise, and can save you a lot of money. In fact, it could save you up to 15% on your energy bills and maximize your furnace’s lifespan. If anyone in your family has allergies or sensitive skin, this action also makes the air cleaner and can alleviate symptoms. Ideally, you should be changing your air filters seasonally, but if you have pets, you might want to change them as often as once a month.

  1. Get Ready For Winter Maintenance

We’re quickly approaching the time of year where we start a fire and enjoy a little family time. Now is the time to make sure there’s no built up soot or nesting animals. This will not only help your unit’s heating efficiency, it will also ensure that carbon monoxide is leaving your home efficiently and you’re not exposing your family to creosote build-up. Get a cleaning if necessary.

  1. Schedule HVAC Maintenance

There are several things that can add to your winter heating bills – an inefficient thermostat, damaged or dirty ductwork, and other issues. Scheduling routine maintenance will help you determine where your system is dragging and how you can optimize it to save money on your heating bills. This also keeps your air quality as healthy as possible.

Now is the time to schedule your fall HVAC maintenance. To start saving money on your energy bills today, contact us.
