Importance of Annual Furnace Servicing

With winter upon us, isn’t it great to return to your warm cozy home? Please remember that with the long hot summer, it may be some time since your furnace last ran, and now it’s likely to be running frequently. Here are a couple of tips that you may have done already, but let’s consider them reminders:

1. It’s important to have your furnace serviced on an annual basis. This is to ensure that it runs efficiently and safely and now is the ideal time to do it.
2. If your forced air heating system is fitted with a conventional air filter, clean or change it on a monthly basis. Conventional air filters sit in the return air plenum, just upstream of the blower. Clean filters improve the comfort of the home and help reduce heating costs.
