Ten Important Things to Do Before Turning on Your Heating System.

Heating season is just around the corner, and it’s time to prepare for the chilly days and cold nights ahead. In this article, we’ve outlined ten essential things to do to ensure your heating system runs smoothly and efficiently throughout winter.

  1. Schedule a service call: Before the heating season begins, it’s wise to schedule a visit from a qualified HVAC technician. They will inspect your system and make necessary repairs or adjustments.
  2. Check Your Thermostat: Test your thermostat to ensure it’s functioning correctly. Replace the batteries if needed and set it to the desired temperature for the winter.
  3. Clean Your Vents and Ducts: Over time, dust, debris, and pet hair can accumulate in your vents and ducts, obstructing airflow. Clean them thoroughly to promote efficient heating.
  4. Inspect and Insulate: Inspect all windows and doors for drafts. Seal any gaps or cracks to prevent heat loss and improve energy efficiency.
  5. Clear the Area Around Heating Vents: Ensure all heating vents are clear of furniture, curtains, or other obstructions; this allows for proper airflow and efficient heating.
  6. Change your Air Filters: Dirty air filters restrict airflow, reduce efficiency, and potentially cause expensive damage. Replace them regularly to maintain optimal performance.
  7. Test Your Carbon Monoxide Detector: Carbon monoxide leaks can be deadly. Test your detector to ensure it’s in proper working condition. If you don’t have one, installing one is highly recommended.
  8. Start now: Stock up on essential supplies such as furnace filters and programmable thermostats. It’s better to prepare in advance.
  9. Consider a Smart Thermostat: Upgrade your heating system with a smart thermostat; this allows you to control the temperature remotely, save energy, and optimize your heating schedule.
  10. Check your oil or gas: If you rely on stored oil or gas, ensure you have enough to get started. Speak to your fuel provider if you need help.

Remember, prioritizing the maintenance and care of your heating system will protect your investment and save you money on energy bills.
