Heating Maintenance

In the winter, your heating system is heavily relied on. Lowery Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning wants to ensure you heating system receives its proper maintenance. You can’t neglect your heating system maintenance and expect it to work year-round. If you want to keep the warm comfort of your home for years to come, it’s important to make annual heater maintenance a priority.
To prevent your heating system from falling into disrepair, follow these guidelines prior to scheduling your heater maintenance check: 

Change your furnace filter regularly

As your furnace gets older, dust particles can build on your furnace’s air filter. This can cause issues like reduced airflow and ineffective heating to your home. These dust particles can also become a fire hazard or potentially cause your furnace to fail in extreme instances of neglect. Your furnace’s air filter should be regularly checked and changed before the winter season starts. A good rule of thumb to go by is to change your furnace’s filter at least once every 1-3 months with regular use.

Install a carbon monoxide (CO) detector in your home

Gas furnaces can prompt the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning if they are not functioning properly. However, installing a carbon monoxide detector can help you stay on top of this hazardous risk by alerting you when dangerous levels of carbon monoxide are detected. Once a carbon monoxide detector is installed in your home, be sure to check it is working correctly at least once a month during the winter season.

Keep the area around your furnace clean and unobstructed

Make sure it is a priority to keep the area around your furnace clean. Also, make certain that the surrounding area of your furnace is free of any obstructions. Keeping the neighboring areas around your furnace and its vents clean will not only maximize airflow and efficiency but also ensure your home’s safety. It is also imperative you do not store anything combustible or flammable near your home’s furnace to prevent any fire hazards that could occur.

Schedule a furnace cleaning and check-up routinely

A yearly furnace cleaning and check-up by a Lowery certified technician should be scheduled before the winter season begins. In doing this, you can ensure your furnace is working correctly and effectively once the colder temperatures hit. 
Even with these tips, you still want to make sure to schedule HVAC maintenance from a Lowery professional every year. The best time to prepare your system for those cold nights is before winter begins. Having annual maintenance done to your system will ensure that your heating does not break down during the coldest time of the year and continues to operate efficiently as possible.
