Time To Tune Up Your Furnace

posted Posted by Jim Birdwell


There are some parts of your heating system you can tune up yourself fairly easily.

Thermostats, air filters, baseboard radiators, and air registers are easy to adjust,

clean, or replace. You can set your thermostat to help save you money this winter.

Additionally, you can replace air filters so that clean, warm air is pumped into your

home, with little risk of indoor air pollution. This can improve the efficiency of

your heat transfer in your home by removing obstructions from your air registers

or baseboard radiators. These tasks are great regular maintenance chores that will

ensure your home is heated effectively with as low a cost as possible.


Other areas of your home heating system require professional help to properly tune

up. For these tasks, it pays to have professional help. One of the most important

of these tasks is the safety check. When heating your home, combustion-based

heating systems produce waste products that are unhealthy to breathe. These flue

gases include carbon monoxide, nitrous oxide, and smoke – they’re all harmful.

Professional heating technicians are trained to inspect any heating systems for

cracks and other small openings that could leak these gases into the air you

breathe. Don’t leave this to chance, if you’ve got any doubts, it may be best to

give us a call.
