Have you turned up the heat yet this fall? If not, you’re likely to do so soon — by the end of next week, temperatures in our area are expected to deep to freezing at night. But before you start using your heating equipment more heavily, it’s important that you give it a little TLC. Follow these tips:
1. Schedule a tune-up
Call Service Plus Heating, Cooling & Plumbing at (317) 434-2627 for a fall tune-up. We’ll make sure your heating system is clean and operating at peak efficiency. If we find something wrong with your unit, don’t worry — we fix and repair all makes and models.
2. Change the filter
You may not realize it, but your furnace filter should be cleaned and/or changed at least once every three months. In the colder months when your heating system is getting a lot of use, you may want to check your filter even more frequently.
3. Clear some space
A lot of homeowners keep their furnace in the basement, an area that’s often used for storage. However, the space around your furnace should be kept clear. Move away boxes, containers and anything that’s flammable.
4. Fill ‘er up
If you have a gas furnace, fill up on fuel sooner rather than later. Prices will only climb as temperatures drop. Now’s the time to get a great deal!
