Temperatures are dropping and the days are getting shorter. With winter on the horizon, there really is no better time than now to prepare your furnace for the cold days to come. Ensuring your furnace is properly maintained will not only keep your house warm, but it will keep your family safe and the bills down.
Don’t wait until the first signs of snow to inspect and clean your furnace, by then it will be too late. While there are times you may want to call a professional, there are plenty of things you can do yourself to keep your furnace running efficiently.
Inspecting the unit for hazards, ensuring it is clean and replacing parts as necessary will make sure your family is warm all winter long. Here’s how:
One of the first things you should inspect, if you have a gas furnace, is to check for any gas leaks. While one of the easiest ways to check for a gas leak is through smell, it may not be the most effective. A simple, yet efficient way to check for gas leaks is to mix soap and water in a spray bottle and spray it on the gas valve. If bubbles appear, there is a leak. Immediately evacuate the house and call your local gas company’s emergency hotline to report it.
