We are starting to think more and more about turning on our heat as we feel the temperatures dipping lower and lower during the nighttime hours. Before you switch that furnace on to keep you warm this winter, you are going to want to make sure it’s ready for the task at hand. There are things you can do as a homeowner to make sure your furnace is ready to keep your warm this winter and to help you avoid heating issues. Hal Mechanical is here to talk about what you can do to avoid heating problems this winter.
What to Do to Get Furnace Ready for Winter?
Following are some of the best things that you can do to ensure your furnace is running its best this winter:
– Fall Furnace Maintenance: Before it gets too cold, this is a good time to have your fall furnace maintenance done. Maintenance is essential to the overall health of your furnace. Small repairs can be caught early, the system is thoroughly cleaned, and a full inspection can help extend the life of your furnace and ensure it is working the best possible.
– Choose the Right Temperature: While we know it might be important to you to feel warm this winter, keep the thermostat set at a reasonable temperature so that you aren’t overwhelming your furnace. Don’t put your furnace into overdrive as it constantly tries to keep up with the heating demands you have placed on it. Most people leave their thermostat set between 68-72 degrees during the winter.
– Watch for Warning Signs: You should always be on high alert for any signs that could indicate there is a problem with your furnace. There are several things that could happen when your furnace is in trouble including, strange noises, hot & cold pockets in the house, higher energy bills, frequent repairs, short cycling and more. Watching for these signs can help you fix any problems with your furnace as soon as you notice them and can help save you money.
– Help Your Furnace: There are a couple things you can do to help your furnace out this winter. One of them is to have ceiling fans placed in the room to help move the warm air from your ceiling down into the room. This is especially helpful if you have any rooms with high ceilings. You should also make sure there are so pieces of furniture that are on top of vents as this can keep the room from getting warm like it should.
