How to Take Care of Your Furnace This Winter

Your furnace is one of the most important appliances in your house, especially this time of year when the temperatures outside are viciously cold. As a heating and cooling contractor serving Oakdale and the surrounding areas, we have a few tips on how to make sure your furnace stays up and running during the winter months.

1. Be sure to have your furnace inspected for the winter by a reputable heating and cooling contractor. If you were not able to get on our schedule before winter, it’s not too late! We can still come to your home and perform our 16 point check-up on your furnace to make sure it is working safely and as efficient as possible.

2. Every month, you should be sure to replace your furnace’s filter. A dirty filter can restrict air flow and can cause your heating bill to increase. If you have any questions about this, call a heating and cooling contractor like Prescription Heating & Cooling.

3. Keep trash and other combustible items away from your furnace at all times. This helps cut back on the chance of a fire breaking out.

4. If you notice that your furnace is making strange noises or you smell something odd while it’s running, or it doesn’t seem to ever reach your set-point on your thermostat, give us a call! Most furnace repairs are not do-it-yourself projects. You need a professional heating and cooling contractor, like Prescription Heating & Cooling.

If you take the time to follow these steps, your furnace could keep you and your family toasty warm for many years to come!
