Don’t look now, but summer is over and the temperatures outside are plummeting. Here in Denver, we’re already starting to experience some cold nights and mornings, but the true cold is on the horizon. That’s why now is the time to make sure your heater is in tiptop condition and ready for the cold months that lie ahead.
Follow these steps to get your furnace ready for winter:
Here are a few simple things you can do to get your heater ready for the fall and winter.
- Swap out the filter — Air filters in your furnace get clogged up with dust and other contaminants over time. Before turning on your heater, make sure to change out the filter so that you have smooth air flow when you need it.
- Schedule annual maintenance — It’s a good idea to have your HVAC system inspected and maintained annually by a licensed technician. Regular maintenance will keep your heater running smoothly and extend its lifetime.
- Give it a test run before it gets cold — You don’t want to wait until the first cold front blows in to turn on your heater for the first time in several months. Take a little time right now to turn on your heater for a test run. This will give you the chance to identify any possible problems that might have developed.
