Temperatures are dropping. Water is freezing. Winter is coming…is your furnace ready?
The worst time for your furnace to go out is in the middle of a cold snap, and you know that’s when it always happens.
Avoid frostbitten toes and icicles in your nostrils by making sure your heater is in tip-top shape this season. Preparing your system for winter can help eliminate fire hazards, prolong the life of your equipment and keep Jack Frost from nipping at your nose on those chilly Atlanta nights.
Here are some ways to get your system ready for winter:
1. Change your air filter. This is a simple thing to do, but surprisingly many people overlook it.
2. Keep your vents open. Closing off vents can restrict air flow, which can reduce the air quality in your home.
3. Test your thermostat. Make sure your system can reach the set temperature and that it goes on and off like it should.
Don’t let Jack Frost nip at your nose this winter. Schedule your furnace tune-up or other maintenance call today, so you can stay warm all winter long.
