Furnace and Winter Preparation

Preparing your furnace for winter | Viccarone Heating & CoolingSept. 22 marked the first day of fall this year, which means that in Ohio and Illinois, winter is already on its way. You probably have a list of preparations you need to undergo before the snow gets here, but don’t forget a crucial item: your furnace, which needs winter preparation just like your windows need weather stripping.

Part of the reason is that the extreme winter weather places more stress on the furnace, as you are likely to use it more heavily during colder months to heat your home when you need to the most. However, it’s also important to get your furnace checked and cleaned to catch any problems before they develop into serious issues, which is not only inconvenient but also dangerous if they occur during a power outage or severe cold snap.

Cleaning your Furnace

First, you should have the furnace thoroughly cleaned, checking several important elements: thermostat operation, safety controls, ignition and flame, indoor blower and combustion fan motor. Secondly, the flame sensor and burners (plus burner compartment) should be cleaned, this  will help ensure that your furnace is operating as efficiently as possible and will not run into issues during the winter (when you will most likely be using it more than normal).

Make sure you hire a professional, like the people at Viccarone Heating & Cooling, to conduct the checks and cleaning, as they will make sure that everything is working properly and will know how to fix it if it’s not. You should also change and replace your furnace filters to keep the equipment running as efficiently as possible.

Combatting Dry Air

Finally, consider investing in a humidifier, like the Honeywell Humidification system. This piece of equipment keeps the air in your home from becoming too dry, which helps families sleep, breathe and relax much better in the winter months. Winter often brings dry air into homes, which can be incredibly uncomfortable (especially if you’re unsure what to do about it). This way, you can avoid these problems before they start.

Don't wait, winter is on its way! Let us clean, test, inspect your furnace and get you ready for the season!
