As winter comes to an end and the summer days approach, you may be thinking about getting your air conditioning system ready for the weather. Now is also a great time to prepare your home heating system for the warmer weather as well. The heating oil team at Eco-Fuel Oil, a local fuel supplier serving Passaic, Sussex, Warren, Hunterdon, and Morris counties, NJ, discusses how to prepare your home heating system for the summer.
Follow these three tips to get your heating system ready for the warmer weather:
- Schedule Heating System Maintenance: Now is a great time to have technicians come to your home because they are less busy at this time of year, making it easier to schedule an appointment. A maintenance visit gives you peace of mind knowing your heating system will be in good shape when you need to use it. The technician will make sure there are no safety issues with your system that could cause problems.
- Have Repairs Addressed: Although it can be tempting to delay heating system repairs with the warmer weather approaching, you should make sure your system is ready for when you will need it later. Any repairs your heating system needs can become worse while it is sitting dormant, making it important to address these issues right away.
- Change the Filter: Checking and replacing your heating system's filters are parts of regular maintenance you can do yourself. Changing your heating system's filter in the summer ensures it is ready when you start your system up again in the winter. Clean filters allow for proper airflow, which helps your furnace work more efficiently.
