Prepping Your Furnace for Winter

In the Indiana winter, your furnace is essential to keeping you and your family warm, safe, and comfortable. However, you don’t want to turn your furnace on during that first cold day only to find out that it isn’t working properly. Below are some helpful tips on how you can prep your furnace and stay warm all winter long.

Change Your Furnace Filter

The filter in your furnace is responsible for trapping airborne pollutants like dust, dirt, and pollen. If your furnace filter is clogged or dirty, it strains the entire system causing your furnace to work harder to heat your home. Regularly changing your furnace filter can help prolong the life and effectiveness of your furnace.

Make Sure Your Thermostat is Working Correctly

A thermostat determines the efficiency of your heating system. If your thermostat is not functioning correctly, this could mean your furnace may not be working efficiently. It’s very easy to make sure your thermostat is working – just turn the heat on! It should always start without any problems. And if you do notice a problem, we’re here to help.

Ensure All Heating Vents are Open 

It’s important to make sure all of your heating vents are open or uncovered. If you notice one room colder than the other, check to ensure nothing is blocking the vent. Blocked vents not only prevent heat from getting out but can also lead your furnace to overheat. On the other hand, if your vents are open and uncovered, your furnace has a much better chance of doing its job.
