While we are almost out of the intense summer temperatures and looking forward to fall, it is never too early to get your furnace ready for the winter temperatures that will be here before we know it. Do not wait unit the cold weather arrives to ensure your furnace is working properly and is capable of keeping you and your family warm this winter. One of the greatest benefits of inspecting your furnace before winter arrives is that you now have time to properly get it repaired before you need indoor heating. Don’t leave your family stuck in the cold when you can easily prepare your furnace for an enjoyable and cozy winter.
Furnace Air Filter Replacement
Some simple step you can take on your own to ensure that your furnace will work properly and effectively during the winter is to first check and replace the air filter. Replacing the air filter in your heater each month will allow better air flow and greater output from your furnace. If your heater has a flat filter, consider upgrading to a pleated filter. This will increase the energy efficiency of your furnace and allows warm air to flow unimpeded throughout your home. Installing an electrostatic heater will also have a positive effect on the air flow into your home.
Air Duct Cleaning Methods
Your furnace can be a dust magnet and this will result in dirty and clogged air vents and ducts. You can remove your vent covers with a screw driver and this will give you access to an area that will greatly benefit from your vacuum cleaner. Your vacuum is a great tool to use to remove all of the dust buildup that has occurred. While this can seem like a task that will take time and get you dirty, it is well worth the energy to remove all of the dust, making your furnace much more effective than it was before you did so. Of course, it’s a great idea to call Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning for expert air duct cleaning for the areas you can’t reach!

Be sure to keep the area around your furnace free of debris and clutter. Inspect the exhaust flue outdoors to ensure it is free of obstructions such as branches, bushes or even bird nests. Keeping the area around your furnace clean and clear will improve its efficiency and provide your home with warm air. Inside your home, make sure that all of your vents are open, and they are not covered by any furniture, boxes or clutter. The air should be allowed to freely flow into your home and create a warm atmosphere.
