Is Your Furnace Ready for Winter, Cleveland?

September 19, 2016

It is important that you take the time to prepare your furnace and air conditioner for the upcoming cold weather Cleveland is known for, if you want it to stay in proper working order throughout the year. It doesn’t typically take very long, but it can save you a lot of headache and hassle down the line. If you are getting the rest of your home ready for fall and winter, do the same for your HVAC unit. Here’s how!

Quick Things to Do to Prepare Your HVAC Unit for Winter

The first thing you need to do to prepare your heating and air conditioning unit for winter is to change the filter. All of the buildup from the summer could make it to where your unit struggles to blow warm air into your home, and it may leave you chilly. Furnace filters are not expensive, but they do need to be changed out regularly. If you have pets that shed, change them more frequently than what the manufacturer recommends to keep your unit in proper working order.

Next, you need to clean off the outside of the unit in your home. Furnaces get caked with dust and other debris during the summer months because they are not being used. This means that when you go to turn them on, you not only get a rotten smell from all of that dust being burned up, but if your home has a lot of debris, it could also start an unwanted fire. Vacuum off the outside of the unit and the burner itself while the entire unit is turned off to make sure you get it all clean. If you have an air conditioning unit outside, make sure to hose it off for the same reason before covering it for the winter months.

Finally, call in someone that can come out and clean your entire HVAC unit, but make your appointment soon. As the cold weather approaches, it can be harder to get that appointment, but it is a necessary part of keeping your furnace maintained. They will keep your furnace cleaned off, plus vacuum out the vents and ducts to keep your home’s system working properly.

Maintaining your HVAC system can be very helpful for increasing your unit’s longevity, so make sure you make the time to do it each year. It should be done in the spring and again in the fall, and it can help keep your unit working flawlessly for longer! If you need help maintaining your HVAC system, give FHS Ohio a call today.
