It’s that time of year again — the holidays are coming up, and with that means chilly temps and winter weather on their way if they haven’t already arrived. Pretty soon, you’re using your furnace throughout the day as well instead of just at night, and it’s going to be several more months before you shut it completely off again.
In order to enhance furnace safety and prevent furnace dangers during long-term use, it’s important to service your furnace regularly and pay attention to any strange, suspicious, or faulty sounds or functions. Fortunately, it’s pretty simple to keep on top of furnace maintenance and provide routine repairs to keep it running at its best. A few of these you can perform at home, while others you should leave to a professional.
