Three Important Things To Do For Your Furnace During The Summer

Construction & Contractors Blog

Are you glad that it's going to be several months before you have to deal with winter weather again? Or are you instead eagerly anticipating when the first snowfall will arrive this year? Whether you love winter or you hate it, a broken furnace probably tops your list as one of the things that you definitely don't want to happen. While it may seem silly to think about these things now, when summer is only just starting, it's never too early to start thinking about your winter comfort. Some things that you'll want to do now, if you haven't already, include:

Change the filters: You should always change any filters on your heating and cooling systems before shutting them off for the year. If you happen to have an all-in-one furnace and air conditioning unit, you'll probably use the same filters all year round. But if you have a furnace and no air conditioner, then you may forget all too easily about the filters once it's time to shut the furnace down in the spring. Dirty filters can attract moisture from the air and allow mold and mildew to feed off of the collected dust. In addition, an already partially full filter may cause issues once you turn your furnace on again, issues that could result in an otherwise unnecessary call to your local repair technician. 

Get a tune-up: Summer is the best time to have your furnace inspected, tweaked, and repaired. While a heating and cooling company may advertise that they repair furnaces, air conditioners, and other climate-control systems for a home, there's a good chance that at least some of their technicians specialize in one or the other. In order to have something for their employees to do, rather than simply sitting around and waiting, these companies may be willing to offer discounts for having your heating system checked out and repaired when most other people are more worried about their cooling system. 

Replace the system: If the heating and cooling technician says that your furnace is on its last legs, try not to wait until winter to make the purchase of a new one. Many other people will be dealing with dead or dying furnaces at that time, driving up the cost of both the furnaces themselves and the labor costs to replace them. By replacing your furnace in the summer, you may be able to take advantage of warehouse clearance sales and other deals that would otherwise not be available. Instead of being just out of reach, these discounts can make replacing your furnace extremely affordable.
