Cold Weather Maintenance Tips for Your Furnace

Getting your furnace inspected or serviced is a very important step when getting ready for winter.

If your unit is in good condition, there are a few easy steps you can take to keep it that running efficiently throughout the season.

1. Check/change your filter regularly

The more you use your furnace, the dirtier your filter will become.

Using a dirty or plugged furnace filter will reduce air flow going into your blower compartment and cause the furnace to run less efficiently meaning it will cost more to run and produce less heat.

If your filter is 4″ wide change it every 4 to 6 months and if it’s 1″ wide change it every month.

2. Call a licensed professional for a Furnace Safety-Check

Furnace tune-ups and safety checks are the single most important thing you can do to ensure your furnace is running efficiently during the winter.

During a tune up and safety check a licensed professional will clean your furnace and the parts, while making sure they’re all working simultaneously.

The safety of the furnace will also be verified, to make sure there is no chance of dangerous carbon monoxide leaking into your home.

After receiving a tune-up and safety check from Metro Heating & Cooling you will have peace of mind knowing that your furnace is running in optimal condition.
