Winter Heating Checklist

Pittsburgh Heating and Furnace

Are you ready for winter? The leaves have changed color, the weather has droppped off, we might be seeing snow any minute now! This isn’t anyone’s first rodeo. But that doesn’t mean there still aren’t some important things to do in order to get your household or business in order before the harsh end of winter rears its head. This checklist is a comprehensive overview of the most important features when it comes to keeping you and yours safe and comfortable from the cold. By following along you will save money every month, keep yourself warm, and avoid the hassle and pitfalls of your heating system failing when you need it the most. The best fix for an emergency is before it even takes place.

  • Check the furnace, check the furnace, check the furnace. We have more details about what to do with your furnace before the winter is here(internal link), but this is probably the single most important step to go over for your home’s comfort and safety. Make sure the area surrounding the furnace is clear of any fire hazard, check the filter, and check the gas detector. These quick and easy moves will ensure your furnace is safe and effective.
  • Tune Up: Becoming an HVAC professional isn’t easy. It is a lot of training and time. Truth is these skills aren’t easy to replicate. That is why it is important to find a certified and trusted team to handle your HVAC tune up. As the home or business owner you have many things in your power in regards to your system’s performance, but some projects are better off being defaulted to experts. The Air Pure team has decades of experience in our field to support you and yours.
  • Check Your Ducts: Especially if they’re used for warm and cool air. Your ducts are an essential part of the HVAC skeleton. If your ducts have holes, leaks, or blockage it is going to put excess stress and pressure on your system, causing it to overwork. This overwork will cost your wallet and the lifespan of your HVAC system. Ductwork is not an easy straightforward task. It takes a special eye and special tools similar to tuning your furnace.
  • Get a Digital Smart Thermostat: We are huge on the digital smart thermostats(insert internal link). They increase efficiency and comfort in the home. That’s money back into your pocket every month. Not only that, it is out of sight out of mind. Everything else in your life is automated so why shouldn’t your heater. A smart thermostat is some serious ease of mind knowing your home will be the perfect temperature when you come home and that your home is operating efficiently when no one is around.
