Heating Season Checklist

Here are a few things to do before winter comes:

  • Change your furnace filter.  This is one of the simplest, yet most effective maintenance items on your heating system.
  • Switch the damper on your humidifier from the summer setting to the winter setting.
  • Replace the evaporator pad on your humidifier.
  • Block off crawlspace vents.
  • Caulk and/or insulate around windows and doors to prevent drafts and heat loss.
  • Check the vent of the furnace for obstructions.
  • Verify the operation of smoke detectors and CO detectors
  • Schedule a reputable HVAC contractor to service the system
