How To Prep Your Furnace For Winter
1.) Change Out Your Air Filters
The first, and easiest, way to prep your furnace for winter is to change out your air filters. We recommend that you change your air filters about every month. This will help ensure that your system is getting the optimum amount of air flow to keep it running efficiently and preserve your furnace to maximize the lifespan of the unit.

Preventative maintenance is a very important measure to take to keep your system running properly. There are a multitude of things that could be deteriorating your system and you wouldn’t know it. Scheduling a certified service technician to come out and ensure your unit is running at 100% capacity is a great proactive measure to take. A great technician will also let you know what issues you may expect in the future with your system and what actions can be taken to help prevent those specific issues.

3.) Test Out Your Furnace
Before it starts to get cold out it would be a good idea to give your furnace a test run. To do this set your thermostat to heat and about 10 degrees warmer than the current temperature in the room. Let the furnace run for 5-10 minutes and put your hand up to one of your supply registers to make sure there’s warm air blowing out.
