Home Care Tip #16: Heating Repair & Maintenance
Whether we are in the middle of winter or experiencing a cool spring, it is important to be sure that your home’s heating system is functioning at an optimal level. This not only keeps your family warm and comfortable, but it can also save money in energy bills. Here are some heating repair & maintenance tips from American Home Shield:
- Check filters every month and change as needed. Refer to your furnace’s owner’s guide for manufacturer’s recommendations.
- Smell around the furnace for gas odors.
- Visually inspect the exhaust vent for damage, deterioration and rust.
- Schedule an annual maintenance service prior to the cold months (mid-fall for the Pacific Northwest).
