Even though there is snow on the ground, spring is right around the corner and before we know it we will be cranking those air conditioning units again! It is important to properly care for and maintain your gas furnace during the summer months in order to ensure a longer life. Here are a few furnace maintenance items to take care of this spring :
- Replace Your Furnace’s Air Filter: Furnace filters are great because they trap dirt, lint and other small bits of waste and prevent them from entering the furnace, but they should be replaced about twice a year. If you intend to replace your filter yourself, make note of the direction or airflow and make sure to put the filter in the right direction!
- Clean Your Furnace: Take a moment to grab a cloth and wipe down the furnace and its pieces.
- Have A Professional Inspection: Get a pro in once a year – typically at the end of the winter season – to take a look around your furnace. This is critical in order to catch small issues that could turn into major repairs if left unattended.
