Believe it or not, winter is right around the corner. Most kids are already in school and it’s only a matter of time before we will all be pulling out our sweaters, scarves and heavy jackets. You should start preparing your home for winter now, and one of the most important things you can do is make sure your furnace is ready to be used when the temperatures start to drop. That way, if you determine your furnace needs repairs, you can get on our HVAC repair schedule for Shoreview sooner rather than later.
We suggest you look at your furnace now instead of waiting for winter for one big reason: if your furnace is broken, you don’t want to discover that when it is 35 degrees out. Not only will your family have to go with little to no heat until it is fixed, but getting an HVAC repair company to your home could be tricky if they are backed up helping other people in similar situations. But if you figure out you need HVAC repair on your furnace now, there is still plenty of time to schedule an appointment and get it fixed.
The first thing you want to do is check the filters. When was the last time you changed them? If you can’t remember or if they are looking dirty, go out and buy new ones and change them out.
Then you should turn your furnace on to see if it works and if it is still blowing out hot air like it should be. Before you do this, make sure there are no items near your furnace that could present a fire hazard. Check to make sure nothing is blocking your air vents and return ducts too.
If your furnace is blowing out warm air as it should be, then turn it off and be sure to test it one more time closer to winter. If it is blowing out cold air or none at all, call us for an HVAC repair appointment so we can get it back up and running as soon as possible.
We can also come to your home and inspect your furnace to make sure it is working properly.
Taking a few minutes to check on your furnace now could save you time, money and hassle on HVAC repair in the long run!
