Go Outside

Go to your outside unit, if you have one, and make sure all debris is cleared away from the unit. Rake up any leaves that are nearby and clean up any sticks or branches that have fallen near it. Be sure the unit also has plenty of ventilation so it can continue to function properly.

Clean the Furnace

Take a few minutes to clean and dust your furnace. Clean the blower assembly, pulleys and belts by sliding out the fan unit or by removing the panel that covers the filter. Just use a clean and damp cloth to wipe down those surfaces.
