As you get closer to winter, it’s a good idea to ensure your HVAC system is up to the task of keeping your family warm until spring. Here are a few tips to make sure your furnace will be running well throughout the coldest months of the year, and that your air conditioning system is protected against cold temperatures:
- Clean around the air conditioning unit. Making sure the central air conditioner unit outside is free of leaves, twigs and brush. You may want to purchase a cover to keep ice off in case of a freeze.
- Replace air filters. A dirty filter restricts air flow, making your system work harder and reduce its efficiency. Replace the filer in all units with removable filters, which may include furnaces, air conditioners, air handlers, humidifiers or air cleaners.
- Check the furnace and ductwork. Before you turn your furnace on for the winter, it’s a good idea to have your HVAC system and ductwork checked. Call Stoffer’s, will make sure your system is running smoothly, and that your ductwork is free of blockages.
