Fall Maintenance - Testing your Furnace
September 17, 2012
As we say farewell to summer and move closer to the winter months, it's a good idea to test your furnace to make sure it's in working order. This will give you plenty of time to schedule a professional to repair your unit if anything isn't working properly. The first time you turn on your heater, the dust in the vents may cause a burning smell and could even set off your smoke alarms. So choose a nice day and open your windows before turning the heat on in your home. While you're testing your furnace, it's also the perfect time to change your air filters and test and replace the batteries in your smoke alarms. By giving your furnace a trial run in the fall, you'll ensure you're prepared for that first cold winter night.
