We all have busy lives with family, work, kids, and our everyday lives that we often will forget to check things out around the house. Or maybe we push things to the side, thinking that it won’t do any harm. However, we must provide ultimate care with our furnace to ensure it will continue to work properly. Our experts at  Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating advised to turn on your furnace before the temperatures begin to drop. 

Testing Your Furnace  

Testing your furnace is more than just a recommendation. If you want your heating system to remain safe, functional, and reliable throughout the winter season, it’s a requirement. Unfortunately, homeowners often mistake turning on their furnace when it is too late and after the bitter cold temperatures have set in. To avoid this situation, it’s always best to give your furnace a test run before the cold weather is upon us. 

Replacing Broken Parts

We may believe that big appliances like our furnaces will last us a lifetime. Unfortunately, this is not the case. All homeowners should be prepared for the possibility of replacing parts or even your entire system. Once you turn your furnace on, you should be able to hear it click into gear. If at any moment you hear any noises that don’t seem familiar, like rattling, squealing, grinding, or clicking, be sure to reach out to one of our professionals at Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating the moment you can to schedule an appointment. We assure you that we will provide plenty of options to fit your home and budget to keep your home nice and warm this year.

Testing Your Thermostat

You may have kids at home, and if so, you’ll know that they are constantly testing you. The same goes for your household thermostat because it works hard to keep us comfortable all year round. Therefore we need to be sure we are periodically testing it out to ensure its utmost efficiency.
