Give Your Furnace A Relaxing Summer
As the temperatures in the area start to climb, your home’s dependency on the furnace drops. Even if you do not plan to use your heating system for a few months, there are essential end-of-season maintenance tips that can give your furnace a peaceful, relaxing summer’s rest. This way you can ensure it is ready to kick back on come next winter.
These three items are quick, easy, and relatively affordable to do. In fact, some are as easy as a quick inspection or flip of the switch.
Here are three steps to take when preparing your furnace for its summer slumber:
- Look at Your Thermostat – Check the battery on your thermostat every spring. A weak battery may create inconsistent temperatures in the house. Swap the battery as you prepare to use your air conditioner instead of the furnace.
- Inspect Your Ducts – Clean air ducts mean efficient HVAC systems. A clogged duct will put a strain on your home’s system, and of course, lead to poor air quality. Make the end of winter your scheduled time for checking and cleaning your duct system.
- Change the Filter – One of the easiest end-of-season maintenance tasks to tackle is your furnace filter. Even if you are not using your furnace, your home’s HVAC system runs through the filter to distribute cool air in summer. Make sure you change the furnace filter for a fresh one.
