Here we are in the winter months. Homeowners should be prepping their furnaces so that they can avoid unexpected repairs or replacements. We are in the season of cozy family time and lots of holidays coming up where we want everything working properly for you and your family gatherings. LRF Maintenance, Heating & Cooling are on duty for you and your family every day of the week. Below are some of the top checklist items provided by our knowledgeable technicians. Keep in mind; a pre-winter furnace checklist is a helpful tool to help you feel confident in a working heating system. 

  • Check Your Filter- Checking your filter will help with keeping the system moving as it should. 
  • Inspect Your Vents- Inspecting your vent will get you in the habit of maintaining a sound heating system for your home. 
  • Check Your Thermostat- This is just like a car. If your thermostat doesn’t work well, it can lead to more extensive issues with your heating system. 
  • Clean Your Furnace- Clean your furnace just like you clean your dishes. 
  • Get an HVAC Inspection & Tune-Up-  Keep your furnace running in tip-top shape and mark your calendars for tune-ups, safety checks, and routine maintenance inspections.
  • Check Gas Lines for Leaks-  One of the worst things that can happen to you as a homeowner is a leak from a gas line. This could endanger you, your family, and your home. So, it is a good idea to inspect your gas lines on a regular basis.
  • Inspect & Clean Air Ducts Yearly- Many homeowners often use humidifiers to have a nice clean airway throughout their homes, and cleaning your air ducts will help make sure you are breathing clean and healthy air.  

Stay cozy and enjoy all the festivities this winter season but first, don’t forget to mark off everything on our pre-furnace checklist so that you can enjoy the season and avoid any extra costs to your home heating system this winter.
