West Springfield Heating Contractor Shares How to Prepare Your Furnace for Winter, Springfield, Pennsylvania

With summer long behind you and winter quickly approaching, you probably want to make sure your heating and cooling systems are working properly. You don't want to be caught off guard with a broken-down heater when it’s freezing outside. Below, Adams Heating & Cooling, a heating contractor in West Springfield, PA, shares how you can prepare your home for winter.

System

Heating ContractorOne of the first steps in preparing your home for winter is to inspect the furnace system. Take the time to give the heater a test run to make sure everything is working properly. While it’s firing up, change your air filter. Air filters should be changed at least every three months to make sure the system is working properly and air is clean.

Attic

While you're testing your furnace, check out your attic crawl spaces. Make sure the ductwork is secure and won’t leak and keep an eye out for any intruders. Rodents and other pests can get into your attic and compromise the insulation and heating system. Ensuring your attic is sealed will help keep your home warm this winter.

Blower

Next, you should check your furnace blower to make sure it isn't clogged with dust or debris. With the system off, you can open the panel of the blower compartment to examine it. If it has a coat of dust on it, you can use a vacuum cleaner with a brush accessory to clean it.

If, during your inspection, you encounter any unusual noises or breakdowns, or your system just isn't warming up, you might need to call a heating contractor. An experienced technician should be able to have your heater running again in no time.
