What You Can Do
Here are a few things you should do to help out your home’s furnace:
1. Upgrade Your Thermostat
If you’ve had the same thermostat that you’ve always had, then take this as your sign to consider an upgrade. Thermostat upgrades aren’t cumbersome nor are they time-consuming. One of our technicians can be in and out of your home in the matter of an afternoon for this upgrade. If you’re looking for quality thermostat services, we’d like to help you.
Often, homeowners debate over upgrading to a smart or Wi-Fi thermostat. We’re going to help you decide between the two.
2. Make Sure Your Filter Is Clean
You need to make sure your home’s filter is clean each season. You should replace this filter about once every three months. A clean filter gives your home the best chance to perform to the best of its ability. This is something you can do completely on your own. If you find yourself struggling, just pick up the phone to call one of our helpful technicians.
3. Keep Things Clear
2020 was quite the year. We’re sure that you spent more time indoors within the confines of your home than ever before. Because of this, you might have moved around your furniture or taken on some home improvement projects. We love the idea of these projects. The problem arises when you move things in front of your home’s vents. Take note of any place that you’ve done this in your home and switch your furniture around. A clear vent will provide you with the best heating.
4. Open Up Your Blinds
Let in some natural light! Letting in some light will help you naturally increase the temperature of your home. This means less strain on your system and faster warmth for you. It’s a win-win scenario that will help your comfort.
5. Don’t Skip Maintenance
Skipping out on maintenance is one of the worst things that you can do. Skipping over maintenance only allows your furnace the opportunity to decline in quality. This increases the chance of danger in your home too. Gas furnaces are a combustion based system. If your gas furnace decreases in quality, the chance that you have a carbon monoxide leak increases too.
