As the weather gets colder in Eastern Iowa, it is important to ensure your furnace is in good working order. Regular maintenance is essential for keeping your home warm and safe during the winter. Neglecting your furnace can lead to reduced efficiency, increased energy costs, and even deadly carbon monoxide poisoning. Here are some tips on how to maintain your furnace for optimal performance and keep your home comfortable this winter.
Change Air Filters: A dirty air filter can restrict airflow, reducing the efficiency of your furnace. Make sure to change your air filter regularly, typically every one to three months.
Check the Thermostat: Make sure your thermostat is set to the desired temperature and is functioning properly. If your thermostat is outdated, consider upgrading to a programmable or smart thermostat for greater energy efficiency.
Inspect the Furnace: Look for signs of wear and tear such as cracks in the heat exchanger or loose wires. If you notice any issues, contact a professional HVAC technician like Colony Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning for repairs.
