How to get your home ready for winter

Winter is here!  Don’t get left out in the cold, give us a call to schedule a furnace service.

Here are a few other things that you can do yourself:

  • Change the furnace filters regularly. Some suggest every three months; others suggest monthly. At least take a look at the filter after 30 days of operation. You’ll be able to tell if it needs to be changed.
  • Stock up on filters during the warmer months. You often can find a bargain on furnace filters and other winter items during those hot summer months.
  • Remove any items you have stored near the furnace, particularly anything that is likely to catch fire. Also remove any household items that are suddenly sitting on top of or in front of your air ducts and return vents.

*Having carbon monoxide and radon detectors are important for everyone’s safety. You can purchase these detectors at most hardware and big box, do-it-yourself stores.
