Late Summer Furnace Maintenance Checklist

Posted on: August 22, 2016

When was the last time you thought about your furnace? Probably not since the last cool day of winter, right? Well, if you want yours to stand up to the test once colder temperatures make their way back into town, there are a few things you need to do NOW!

✔ Clean or Replace the Filter

This is your reminder to clean or replace the filter. It took a beating last winter – just think about all the dust and airborne pollutants it trapped in order to help you breathe fresher, cleaner air. If you want it to work just as well this year, now is the time to get it ready.

✔ Dust Off the Unit

Now that the furnace has been sitting virtually unused all summer long, it has likely collected dust and other debris. Keeping it clean and tidy can help keep interior components working properly and allow the entire system to work more efficiently. Use a vacuum with soft bristles or a microfiber cloth to remove dust and dirt.

✔ Call in the Professionals

We understand that not all homeowners are professional hvac technicians which is why we recommend calling in the experts – that’s where we come in! Our techs will perform an assessment and make sure your system is in good standing before the heating season starts. This way your furnace will be ready to take on colder temperatures with no problems, it’s a win-win.

Don’t wait until it’s too late! Call on the experts at ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric ( today and don’t forget to connect with us on Facebook!
