There are many things that people should do to prepare for the colder seasons of the year. One category of things involves getting the house ready for winter. While there are many things people need to do around their homes to prepare for the winter, one of the most important tasks involves getting your furnace ready for the winter.
When preparing your furnace for the winter, the first thing you should do is check your filter and replace it as necessary. You should also change your thermostat so it is now in heating mode, rather than cooling mode like it may have been before.
You should also make sure your furnace does not make any strange noises when it is on. Check to make sure that all of the heating vents are uncovered, so that the heat will be able to leave the vents. If the heat is trapped, your house will not be heated adequately, and your furnace can be overheated as well. You should also make sure to schedule a tune up/maintenance appointment for your furnace before the winter starts. A tune up includes a complete heating cycle operation check.
As you can see, there are several things that you should do to prepare your furnace for the colder seasons. These steps can ensure that your home is properly heated and that your furnace is running safely and efficiently.
