How To Make Sure Your HVAC System Is Ready For Winter

How To Make Sure Your HVAC System Is Ready For Winter | Heating Company Cincinnati | Rusk Heating & CoolingIt's officially the first day of winter and if you haven't been using the heat in your home just yet, we can assure you that you're going to need it for the next couple of months. With freezing temperatures making their way into town for good, your furnace is going to being working around the clock keeping your home comfortable. In order to make sure it pumps heat without any hiccups this season, here's what you need to do:

Clean The Filter This is one of the most, if not the most, important maintenance tasks a homeowner can perform. Clogged filters restrict airflow and that means your system has to work even harder to maintain a comfortable temperature inside your home. Please, don't make it work any harder than it already has to.

Leave at Least Three Feet of Space Adequate airflow is a vital component of a properly functioning heating system. If you've got storage boxes, furniture or any other objects within three feet of the furnace, there's a good chance air isn't able to flow freely through the system. Keep Air Vents Clean and Clear Your air vents are the last places warm air passes through before it enters the living spaces of your home and then ultimately into your lungs. Sure, the filter needs to be kept clean, but you shouldn't forget about the vents. Dusty or dirty vents could mean you're breathing in things you definitely don't need inside your body.
