3 Ways to Prepare Your Home for Winter, Glastonbury, Connecticut

Falling snowflakes and ice formations may be beautiful, but when the temperature dips outside, it can be unpleasant indoors if your furnace isn’t fully operational. Fortunately, you can ensure that your home will stay comfortable by checking a few things beforehand. Here are some essential HVAC maintenance tasks you should do to prepare your furnace for winter. 

Crucial HVAC Maintenance Tasks Before Winter

1. Switch Out Your Filter

Your furnace can’t heat air that it can’t access, which is why clogged filters are so problematic. To ensure that your system has the airflow it needs to move air throughout your home, replace your furnace filter before you turn on your heater for the year. Replace the filter anytime it looks dirty. 

2. Update Your Programmable Thermostat HVAC maintenance

Since your unit may not automatically switch between spring, summer, autumn, and winter schedules, be sure to check and update your thermostat before you start using your furnace. Make sure your unit is programmed to turn to the appropriate temperature day, night, and weekends. Also, replace the batteries to ensure that your system doesn’t stop working suddenly.

3. Take Your Furnace for a Test Spin 

Don’t wait until the first frigid day to find out whether or not your furnace works. Test out your furnace once or twice before winter comes to ensure that the system is working. Notify a professional HVAC maintenance contractor if you notice any strange smells or sounds, as changes could indicate the need for proactive repairs.
