Your home heating system at your St Anthony house is about to get a good work out this winter. Minnesota winters are notoriously frigid, icy and snowy, so it is important that you keep your furnace or boiler in good shape. Here are a few suggestions on what you should do now and throughout the winter to ensure your home heating system stays up and running.
Before the worst of the winter weather hits, you should have your home heating system inspected by professionals, like the ones at Aabbott Ferraro. We will come to your house, take a look at the entire system and recommend any necessary repairs. We will also clean your furnace and change the filters if need be. We can then give you tips on how to keep your furnace clean throughout the winter, and we can show you how to change the filters if you are unsure of how to do it yourself. (This is usually a very simple process, and filters are not that expensive either. Regularly changing your furnace’s filters is one of the most crucial parts of keeping your home heating system working, especially during the winter months when it is in constant use.)
If your home heating system suddenly goes out and if your furnace is not new, then chances are the pilot light has gone out. If you know how to do this safely, relight it and your home heating system should start to work like normal again. If you do not know how to relight the pilot light safely, or if you have a electronic ignition furnace (a newer type of furnace that doesn’t have a pilot light) and it isn’t working for some reason, then give the experts in home heating systems a call here at Aabbott Ferraro so we can come out and take a look.
Finally, make sure your thermostat is in good shape too. The thermostat is what tells your home heating system what the temperature should be inside of your home. When your heat stops working, you might immediately think the culprit is your furnace, but it could very well be a problem with your thermostat. Keep an eye on this appliance as well throughout the wintertime.
