4 Tips for Spring Furnace Maintenance, Yorktown Heights, New York

With warmer weather just around the corner, your furnace and home heating system are probably the last things on your mind. However, setting aside some time now to take care of your furnace will help ensure it stays in good shape until the weather cools down again later this year. Here are just a few furnace maintenance tips to add to your spring cleaning list.

How to Prepare Your Furnace For Spring

1. Replace the Filter

heatingAfter working hard to keep your home warm all winter long, your heating system is in dire need of a fresh air filter. The new filter should keep the system running smoothly until the summer is over, but changing it every three months or so will make your home’s HVAC operation as efficient as possible.

2. Vacuum & Clean Vents

Spring is the perfect time to give your home a full cleaning, but some homeowners accidentally skip over air vents. Over time, the vents can gather a good amount of dust which blocks warm or cool air from circulating through your house correctly and efficiently. Vacuum or dust every vent to remove the buildup and clean the way for proper circulation and heating.

3. Clean the Intake Pipe

In addition to the interior components of the heating system, there’s a pipe outside of your home that serves as an air intake. If this pipe is clogged with leaves or other outdoor debris during the fall and winter, your entire HVAC system will suffer. Remove the buildup and check the intake periodically to ensure nothing new has blocked it.

4. Schedule a Professional Inspection

Even with all of this cleaning, a professional inspection is needed to make sure your heating and cooling system doesn’t have any major issues. An HVAC technician will inspect every element of the system and make the necessary adjustments to let your furnace and air conditioner operate at peak efficiency.
