How to Prepare Your Furnace for the Winter

With Labor Day behind us, it’s time to start looking forward to the cold weather. If Old Farmer’s Almanac is right, it’s expected to be a frigid winter! Now is the best time to avoid the rush and prepare your furnace for the winter by scheduling its annual tune-up.

Why Schedule an Annual Tune-Up?

Preventive maintenance is key to ensuring your furnace is ready to get to work when you turn it on once the temperatures drop. Regular maintenance helps keep your furnace running at its best and helps prolong its useful life. It also helps save money on your heating bills because when your furnace is running efficiently, it uses less energy.

A service technician will inspect your furnace and perform maintenance tasks such as:

  • Cleaning and lubricating all moving parts
  • Checking for cracks in the burner assembly
  • Making adjustments as needed
  • Replacing worn parts
  • Recommending any repairs that should be made before the furnace is put into service
  • Changing the air filter
  • Calibrating the thermostat

Inspections can help prevent major issues, but if you do need heating service, we have a whole team of experts ready to help!

Winter Furnace Prep: Important for Keeping Your Home and Your Family Safe

Most importantly, your annual tune-up includes a safety inspection that will alert your technician to any issues that could pose a threat to you and your family. If your furnace is malfunctioning, it may produce excess carbon monoxide or it could be leaking this dangerous gas into your home.

A professional service technician should perform most of the maintenance to prepare your furnace for winter. However, there are things you can do yourself to help maintain your furnace! During the heating season, make sure that you check your air filter at least once a month and clean or replace as needed. Keep returns and vents clear to maintain optimal airflow to your heating system.

Of course, if a problem does occur with your furnace during the winter, Arctic Air Conditioning is ready to serve you!
