Hopefully it will be a while before you need to get your hats and gloves out for winter, but as summer winds down, it’s important to give your furnace a little TLC. When the temperatures drop this fall and winter, you don’t want to be left without a functional furnace.

Before it gets cold, take some time to check out your furnace and perform some standard maintenance to make sure you’ll have heat when you need it. Take care of your furnace now, and you’ll be less likely to have problems later.

End of Summer Furnace Maintenance

  • Replace the filter. If you choose to tackle just one furnace maintenance project, make it replacing the filter. HVAC filters should be changed twice yearly to keep the system working smoothly. If the filter is dirty, the system has to work harder. This often causes inefficient heating and premature system failure.
  • Check the blowers and burners. During the summer, dust builds up on furnaces. Before it kicks on for the first time this season, remove dust and debris to avoid a potential fire hazard. Make sure the burner is properly aligned and rust-free, and oil the blower motor to keep it running smoothly.
  • Clear the vents. When your supply vents are obstructed, they can’t circulate warm air. Before the colder months, make sure your vents aren’t blocked by drapery, furniture, etc. If your ducts haven’t been professionally cleaned lately, schedule a professional duct cleaning to make sure they are free from debris.
  • Schedule a professional furnace checkup. If you aren’t familiar with how your furnace works, you may want to consider scheduling a professional furnace checkup. When you choose Triple Service for the job, a technician will thoroughly go over your system and recommend repairs as needed.
