Now that the summer is almost over, you need to start thinking of what is left behind. If you’ve been procrastinating, now is the time to get those last minute maintenance items done!
Winter will be here before you know it! While it may still feel like summer outside now, this is the perfect time to start preparing your home for the cold weather ahead.
Heating System Maintenance
Start by setting up an appointment with your local authorized Carrier dealer to have your furnace and heating system inspected and serviced.
An annual inspection is important to make sure your heating system is working properly and operating at peak performance this winter.
Having your heating system inspected now, rather than waiting until cold weather arrives, will avoid the last minute rush and ensure that you won’t be left shivering on that first cold morning.
It’s also a good idea to inspect your heating ductwork annually, and seal up any leaks with metal foil duct tape followed by duct mastic.
Be sure to change the air filter on your furnace every month or two during cold, winter weather. Using a quality air filter and replacing it regularly will help keep the air in your home clean and allow your HVAC system to run more efficiently.
Also, be sure to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and replace them if needed.
