There are many ways you could put your furnace away for the season. You could just leave it alone and just forget about it until the temperatures start to cool off again. Or, you could try to take care of it last minute, calling for some necessary furnace repairs in Belgrade so you’re not surprised next fall. We want to encourage customers to start building good habits, and taking care of their furnace systems even if they might not need them for the next few months.
Cold temperatures come at us very quickly here in Belgrade. That’s why you want your furnace to be in fighting shape before the fall comes this year. This starts by making sure you put it away the right way, by cleaning it up, changing the air filter, and taking care of any last-minute problems that you might otherwise need to.
Clean and Put Away Your Furnace Properly
Your furnace can benefit from a clean and clear space in more ways than one. For starters, it’s important to remember that a lot of dust is going to collect between now and the end of the summer. Even if your furnace is locked away in some airtight room of your home, dust and debris just seem to settle everywhere–even in places where it might seem impossible.
While you can’t really eliminate all the dust, you can eliminate the clutter by clearing out some space around your furnace system. Any storage boxes or additional appliances in your home should find a new home since the air around your furnace should be left clear, even when you’re not using it.
Trust us, your future self will thank us later when a cold night hits this fall and your furnace is ready to go with no big hiccups.
Change Out the Air Filter
It’s a good best practice to change out the air filter at the end of every heating season. This ensures that when you turn your furnace on for the first time next heating season, it’s going to be clear and free of any contaminants that might otherwise try to infiltrate it.
Also, a clogged air filter is going to stifle the system, so this is kind of like preparing for a dinner party in the future by washing your dishes now. It will just make things faster, easier, and it will avoid the kind of situation where you forget about changing your air filter until it’s too late!
