Indiana winters are unpredictable. One day it might be 40 degrees and sunny, and the next, we might get hit with a snowstorm at below freezing temperatures.
Because of this inconsistency, it’s important that your furnace is well taken care of to keep your home comfortable, no matter the weather outside.
Follow these tips to help keep your HVAC system running at peak performance during the winter months:
- Open all vents: Keep all of your registers and vents open with no obstructions, such as furniture. This helps ensure you have proper airflow throughout your home and can improve the overall efficiency of your system.
- Change your furnace filter: Change your furnace filter at the beginning or end of every season at a minimum. If you have pets, consider replacing the filter monthly due to excess hair and dander in the air. A clean filter will keep your system running smoothly and improve your air quality.
- Check for exterior gaps: Are you noticing uneven temperatures and cold drafts in your home? The culprit may be cracks in your windows. Evaluate your home’s windows and doors, and caulk or weather strip where necessary. This will keep your system from overworking and keep your entire home nice and cozy.
- Have routine maintenance: Have you had your winter furnace inspection? If not, you still have time! With proper testing and cleaning, you can have peace of mind that your system is running safely and performing its best.
