Getting Your Heating System Ready For The Cold

Before the cold months come back around, it is a good idea to make sure your heating system is ready. Here are a few tips to make sure your heating system is ready to efficiently keep you warm during the cold.

Check Your Thermostat

Your thermostat exercises an incredible amount of control over your heating system. Make sure your thermostat is not showing any issues. For electronic thermostats, ensure the batteries are good and the settings are actually working.

Check All Filters

Dirty air filters can severely limit the power and operability of your HVAC system. You should routinely check filters anyway, but make sure you definitely do so before the colder months. Swap the filters according to the appliance manufacturer’s instructions.

Clean Your Vents

Make sure your vents are dust-free and clean. Remove any obstructions from your vents and ensure that air is flowing properly through them. This will prepare your home for receiving the heated air without it also receiving dust and allergens with it.

Check for Air Leaks

Air leaks in the home can steal your heated air and make your heating system work harder. When these things happen, you will find you are paying more for less heating. Make sure to check for air leaks. Seal any leaks you find.

You can use weather-stripping and caulk to proactively seal any areas where you may have an air leak. For example, areas under doors and around windows often need weather-stripping to keep air leaks at bay.

Have Your HVAC System Serviced

Some servicing from a professional heating service will go a long way towards ensuring your HVAC system is ready for the winter. A technician will check all the important things like wiring, airflow, and motor health.

Servicing will give your HVAC system the head start it needs. Professional maintenance does not have to occur frequently, but it can make all the difference right before the colder months start.
