What Your Heating System Needs in Summer
You’re not relying on your furnace in the summer, but your furnace is still relying on you! Maintenance and upkeep is critical if you’re hoping to use your equipment again next heating season.
So what does your furnace need to prepare for the next winter?
Clean Those Ducts
If ducts aren’t properly cleaned, the dirt and dust that settles on them can be circulated back into the home. Additionally, the more dirt, dust and debris built up inside the ducts the less effective and efficient the heating equipment.
Clean the Furnace
Even the furnace itself can get dusty and full of debris, especially after a whole winter of operation. A clean furnace is not only safer, it’s more efficient and can save you money on your heating costs.
Change the Filters
Airflow is crucial to the proper function of an air-forced heating system, and dirty filters can block that airflow causing homeowners to feel little to no heat throughout the home. Changing the filter earlier on ensures that it’s done before the next heating season.
