Halloween marks the unofficial start to the holiday season – a time when our homes are filled with loved ones, and the warmth of our living rooms brings people together as the temperatures outside dip.
Now is a good time to make sure your furnace is ready to keep your home comfy and cozy in the months ahead.
Here are a few tricks to treat your furnace.
First step: Clean
Check and replace your filters. Then, make sure your ducts are clean and call in a professional if needed. Finally, check your vents and clear them of any dust and debris that could block air flow. Dirty filters and ducts make your furnace work extra hard to push the air through, using more energy and increasing the wear and tear on your system.
Second step: Test
You don’t want to find out that your furnace is on the fritz right when your crew needs to warm up after a long night of trick-or-treating. Test it now before the chilly temperatures set in to make sure it’s working well. The ghosts, goblins, princesses and superheroes in your life will thank you later.
Third step: Do a safety check
Replace the batteries in your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors now before your to-do list fills up with holiday errands.
