3 Steps to Winterize Your Furnace
Your furnace has been turned off for several months now. Before turning it back on, there are some things you should take care of to winterize your furnace.
Install new filters
The filters catch all the dirt and debris in the air to prevent it from clogging the furnace. Before you start it up for the winter, it is highly recommended that you swap out the old filters for new ones.
Remove the Clutter
When the furnace isn’t in use during the summer, it can be tempting and easy to use the furnace room as a place to store extra stuff. Before you switch on the heater for the season, be sure to remove the extra clutter from the closet. This allows the furnace to get adequate airflow.
Clean and Inspect All Systems
Dust can collect in your furnace during the time that it isn’t in use. This can cause some serious problems when you turn it back on. It is a good idea to hire a professional to clean out all the systems and perform a routine inspection to make sure everything is working correctly.
