You will want the furnace to always be working the most efficiently that it can during the winter. So make sure inspections are doing regularly. This helps to keep you home warm and comfortable when you are there. If you have a programmable thermostat you can set it to warm up the home different hours of the day and different days of the week. There are different models of the thermostat that you can purchase. If your week is the same, you can have the settings programed so that the home starts to warm up just before you arrive home. This also decreases the amount of heat produced, as well as a monthly energy bill. If the home is kept warm while you are away, the heat is just wasted.
Purpose of the Filter
One part of the furnace that you will not want to forget about is the filter. The filter will help to keep the air in your home clean and free of pollutants. Filter inspections allow air to travel through the filter, but then capture and collect any dirt or dust that is in the air. This will then prevent the dirt from traveling through the furnace system. Always remember to have a filter in the furnace when it operates. If you do not, you can increase the chance of having a part becoming damaged from the dirt and dust.
Check it Regularly
Make sure that you check the filter on a regular basis. This way you can see when the filter is getting more clogged and full of dirt and dust. When it is recommended, you will want to change the filter with a brand new filter. While you can clean the filter, it will eventually need to be replaced. If you are not sure how often this should be, we can recommend when it should be done. If you have pets, you will have to replace the filter more often. This is because of the pet hair and dander. By changing the filter, you can help keep the air quality the best it can be.
