If you’re a classic procrastinator that hasn’t already serviced their furnace this season, you’re in luck! Some of these maintenance tips can be easily performed on your own and others will require the help of a Levine & Sons professional. Regardless, leaving your unit to work with no maintenance is dangerous and irresponsible so it is time to get moving…
Change Your Filter
A dirty air filter can do way worse than just contaminate your air. When your filter is backed up, air has difficulty passing through the system and this causes the motor to work harder. Over time, the motor will burn out and you’ll have nobody to blame but yourself. Changing the filter every few months will keep your air clean and have your unit working efficiently every heating season.
Clean Your Chimney
You furnace flue and chimney work together to remove toxic gases from the air in your home. If there are blockages in their path, that air might work its way back into your home and become hazardous for you and your family.
Buy a CO Detector
Every home in America should have a carbon monoxide detector but unfortunately, this is not the case. These detectors save lives because monoxide is invisible and almost odorless so it can sneak up on you fast. If you have a home heating system, you NEED to have this type of protection.
Maintain Your Furnace
Vacuuming and cleaning out your furnace should always be a part of your winter cleaning routine. The coils on your furnace need to be kept dust-free if you want them working efficiently and this is where your vacuum comes in handy. Take the attachment, screw it on and go to work cleaning those hard to reach places in and around your furnace.
