Home Heating System Maintenance4 Easy Home Heating System Maintenance Tips From the Pros

Maintaining your home heating system is extremely important, but it doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. You definitely don’t have to wait for disaster to strike before you take action. Many furnace maintenance and repair tasks are best left to professionals, but there are still plenty of proactive steps you can take yourself to ensure your family’s comfort all winter long.

Here are four easy tips to help you keep your home heating system running this winter:

1. Inspection Time.

Conduct a quick inspection of the furnace and everything connected to it, and carefully look everything over for signs of wear or damage. Wiggle the various tubes and wires to make sure they are securely connected to the furnace. Pay close attention to what you smell; if there’s a natural gas odor (which smells like rotten eggs), stop everything and call an HVAC professional immediately.

2. Clean It Out.

Make sure that the area around your furnace is clear of debris, including stored boxes or bags. These can block vents and prevent the furnace from operating at full capacity.

3. Swap Those Filters.

Continue changing your air filters monthly, especially during times of the year when your home heating and air conditioning systems are used regularly.

4. Cover Yourself.

Consider purchasing a preventative maintenance agreement from your professional HVAC service provider. These plans go a long way in preventing breakdowns, and will provide peace of mind that you can count on your HVAC system when you need it most.
