Homeowners are busy tackling their fall maintenance chores, inside the home and out. Chief among those chores should be HVAC system maintenance. If you haven’t put it on your list, you should. Here are some tasks to complete before the worst winter weather arrives, so that your furnace works efficiently and without problems throughout the heating season.
As fall approaches in the Northeast, temperatures get cooler at night and in the morning, warning you of the impending winter. Less daylight and cooler weather signals homeowners to fire up the furnace and settle in for a winter of high energy consumption. Not so fast. Colder weather isn’t necessarily a prescription for more energy usage. In fact, you can still find energy savings during the fall.
