Quick tips to keep your furnace in top shape
(NC) As the winter months inch along, Canadians can take simple steps to make sure that the temperature inside the home doesn't drop with the weather outside, as follows:
• Change the filter on a regular basis - Your furnace filter captures dust and debris. If it is dirty the optimum amount of air isn't getting to your furnace and the air quality in your home decreases. A dirty filter also forces the furnace to work much harder.
• Upgrade to a programmable thermostat - This will save you money without sacrificing your comfort. Your furnace will work less, saving you more
• Get a tune-up - Have a licensed technician perform maintenance to identify any issues and prevent a costly repair.
• Protect yourself - Install carbon monoxide detectors on every level of your home and in each bedroom.
Why take a risk this winter? Befriend your furnace and fight the freeze together to ensure that you and your family stay warm.
