Spring is close here in Southern Maryland. Soon, we’ll be trading our sweaters for sandals and shutting off the heat until next fall.
But before you put heating season in the rearview mirror, there are a few things you need to do. These tasks will help keep your furnace or boiler in good running order so it will run at its best possible efficiency when you have to fire it up again next fall.
If you have a forced air heating system, the air filter is a critical component of it. A clogged air filter can dramatically reduce your furnace’s efficiency, which will lead to higher energy bills. The dust and dirt can also damage your heating system’s parts, which can lead to more heating system repairs now and in the future. Check your air filter once a month, especially if someone in your home has allergies or another respiratory condition, and change as needed.
Your furnace or boiler has had to work hard this winter. Give it some TLC with an annual maintenance inspection. This time of years is the ideal to for this service because our technicians have a more open schedule ahead of everyone wanting their central air conditioning system getting a inspection later on in the spring. Getting your furnace or boiler tuned up now also means that whenever cool weather comes this fall, your heating system will be ready to go.
How did your furnace or boiler do this winter? Did you notice your heating energy costs going up? Did your heating system have to operate more frequently to keep your home warm? If so, this time of year is the best time to upgrade to a new, high-efficiency furnace or boiler. You’ll be ready for next heating season and your new heating system will pay you back from the first time you turn it on with better energy efficiency. Again, this is the optimal time to have a new furnace or boiler installed because our service technicians have more open slots on their schedule.
