Fall is typically the time of year to stow away the outdoor furniture and take time to ensure that your house is “buttoned up” and ready for the cold snap that’s getting closer all the time. The fall home to-do list typically includes things like cleaning the chimney, caulking and weather-stripping, and changing batteries in smoke and carbon-dioxide alarms. It should also include a thorough check up of the most important piece of household equipment at this time of year – your furnace. Find out if your furnace is ready for fall.
Get Your Furnace Ready For Fall
Like any other crucial piece of household equipment, your furnace needs some TLC to keep it running efficiently. That should include regular maintenance. Inspect the filter on a monthly basis, change it when necessary. You should also schedule a yearly professional inspection for basic repairs and cleaning.
Is Your Furnace At The End of Its Lifespan
It’s also important to realize that furnaces have a lifespan. They can only be repaired so many times before it simply makes better financial sense in terms of efficiency, to have it replaced. Newer furnaces are more energy-efficient, offering better performance. They can actually make your home more comfortable. And save you money in fuel and electrical consumption in the long run.
