Fall Maintenance Tips: Furnace


Don’t wait for the dead of winter to perform some furnace maintenance. After all, if you spot problems now you can ensure they’ve been fixed before you really need indoor heating.

Take some time out of your schedule this fall to maintain your furnace, using the below steps:

  • Replace your air filter monthly. If you are currently using a flat filter, you may consider upgrading to a pleated filter, HEPA filter, or electrostatic filter to increase your furnace’s energy efficiency.
  • Clean vents and ducts. Remove any dust or debris from your vents with the extension hose of your vacuum. Simply unscrew the vent covers around your home to clean and replace once finished.
  • Check the blower belt for cracks. First, turn off the power to your furnace via the main circuit breaker. Remove the steel cover of the air handler with a screwdriver and look for the largest rubber belt – inspect for cracks. Replace the belt if cracks are found.
  • Program your thermostat. Adjust your thermostat to automatically lower the temperature while you are sleeping or away from home. Home not equipped with this type of thermostat? Consider upgrading to one. Simply turning your thermostat back 10 to 15 degrees for 8 hours can save you up to 15 percent a year on your heating bill!

Now’s the Time to Schedule a Furnace Checkup

As we head into fall, it’s time to start preparing your home for the cold, harsh winter. One of the most important things you can get done this autumn is furnace maintenance. According to This Old House, a professional cleaning and inspection in the fall ensures your furnace won’t wear out this winter. Let’s take a closer look at why now’s the time to schedule a furnace checkup:

To keep your family safe

During your annual furnace checkup, your Patterson Plumbing technician can identify issues that may seem harmless, but are actually quite dangerous. Your furnace is designed to emit exhaust out of a flute of chimney. If a component isn’t working properly, deadly carbon monoxide could poison your home’s air.

To extend its lifespan

Your furnace needs to be checked annually to make sure it’s not being put under too much strain. An overworked furnace will work less efficiently, require more repairs, and burn out quickly. Our heating experts will assess your furnace to verify that it’s maintaining peak operating efficiency, which will in turn extend its lifespan.

To improve energy efficiency

When cold weather hits, it’s important that your furnace is running as smoothly as possible. A dirty furnace must work harder to keep your home comfortable during the winter, resulting in increased energy consumption.

Don’t wait until your furnace breaks down to call Patterson Plumbing. Stalling is not only inefficient, but could put you and your family in danger this winter. Call us at 719-544-4922 to make an appointment that’s convenient for you, and don’t forget to like us on Facebook for more tips!
