With winter around the corner you want to make sure and get your heating system tuned up and checked out. If you do this, you will be saving yourself a lot of money in the long run. Here are a few things you can do to get your gas furnace, HVAC heater or oil furnace genuinely working it’s best before the Winter blast. First is to just turn on the control thermostat unit. Seems straight-forward and easy enough, but, you want to make sure your gas furnace is genuinely working and blowing tepid hot air. Second, make sure to check all the air filters your gas furnace may have. You may have filters in your heating systems grill, your ceiling, or wall vents too. Some people like to go and get this done to try and save some money by washing these gas furnace filters out instead of replacing them. I say just replace them right away. You do not believe what has been building up inside those filters over the year and you’re breathing this stuff in. Make sure to check the oil furnace flue, contact an HVAC professional to scrub your chimney, and test your carbon monoxide detectors. If you have a oil furnace that uses oil, be sure to check and replace your filter if really needed. Be sure as well to take a peek at the tank level while you’re there too. If for any reason you find your heating unit is not genuinely working respectfully, you may need to contact an Heating and Air Conditioning professional or a gas furnace maintenance business to come out and find what’s wrong before the winter comes in and gets cold.
