Common sense can have practical advantages when it comes to getting  your furnace checked out every year.

Why would you risk such an important investment as your furnace when a little preventative maintenance could save you a big bill? Call a professional to inspect your heating system or check out the Practical Advantage Preventative Maintenance Program page.

Inspect your chimney.

Check for any obstructions such as bird nests or debris. Make sure there is no significant soot buildup, as it can be a dangerous fire hazard. If your chimney hasn’t been inspected in a long time, call a professional to check it and clean the ducts.

Make sure your thermostat is working properly.

If a thermostat is not working correctly, your heating system may not be working efficiently. Turn on your thermostat, and monitor how it responds. It should start immediately without any problems.

Double check all heating vents to make sure that they are completely open.

Walk around your house to make sure that nothing is blocking your heating vents. Blocked vents are not only useless since the heat can’t get out, they are a serious fire hazard.

Schedule an appointment to clean your furnace early in the season.

Professional companies get very busy at the onset of winter, so it’s a good idea to schedule your appointment ahead of time. A professionally cleaned heating system will work better and more efficiently, saving you money in the long run.
