4 Tips to Keep Your Heater in Shape During the Winter

When the winter temperatures start to drop, the last thing you want to deal with is a broken heater. Maintaining your heater prior to and during the winter can help keep everything running smoothly. Here are four things you can do to take care of your heather this winter:

1- Schedule a Regular Preventative Maintenance Inspection. Taking preventative action for your heating system is the best way to save you from unexpected problems. A heating & air professional can check on your energy efficiency and inspect all components of your heater, giving you peace of mind.

2- Replace Your Filters. If you want your heating system to function properly, you should be replacing the air filters often. We suggest you replace them every one to three months to achieve maximum efficiency. This is one of the easiest things you can do on your own, and it really makes a difference.

3- Wipe it Down. After you replace your filters, eliminating any dust and debris is a good way to prep your heater for winter. This allows the warm air to flow freely in your home and also helps provide better air quality. If your heater is in a hard-to-reach place, call in a technician to do it for you.

4- Get a Smart Thermostat. These gadgets not only help maintain your heater, they can also save you money! A programmable thermostat allows you to automatically set up different temperatures throughout the day, so your heater isn’t overworking at times when you aren’t even home.
