Living in the Las Vegas desert often means shorter time frames when we rely on heat. Where many might be tempted to crack the air conditioner on here and there, before too long, we will be relying on the cooling system to provide our homes with comfort. No matter when that time comes, it is ideal for Las Vegas homeowners to know the steps to take to prepare their furnace for the off season. With this in mind, we at Air Supply Air Conditioning & Heating would like to offer some recommendations to prepare your furnace for the off season.
Change Batteries in Thermostat & Adjust Temperature
Be sure to set the thermostat in accordance to the weather in addition to checking the thermostat’s battery. Batteries typically last a year, so if you can’t remember the last time batteries were changed, now is a good time.
Maintain a Clean 30″ Minimum Space Around Furnace
Make certain the furnace and surrounding is free of clutter as well as dust and debris. There should be optimally 3 feet of clearance around the furnace. Ensuring it is a clutter free zone is in your better interest for a multitude of reasons.
Clean or Change Furnace Air Filters
Give or take a week or two, the filters should be changed every 6 weeks. Depending on the type of filters you have, this is a reminder to clean or change the filter. Keep in mind however, the filters should be maintained throughout the year to prevent the need for repairs and an efficiently operating furnace.
Professional Heating Inspection & Tune Up Service
Consider an inspection service to ensure everything is still operating accordingly in the event you were on point and got the furnace tuned up at the start or during the fall season. Otherwise, now is a perfect time to schedule a furnace tune-up.
