When the outside temperatures fall into the low teens or sub-zero, your furnace will be cycling quite frequently. The more usage any product is subjected to, the greater the chance of a breakdown. Maintaining your systems with a proper furnace clean and check is vital to ensure the longevity of your product. To minimize any comfort issues make sure to do the following:

  • Have your furnace inspected prior to the harsh winter weather. Many potential problems can be resolved with a preventative maintenance service. Your equipment will also run more efficiently when properly cleaned and serviced.
  • Check your furnace filter on a regular basis to make sure they are clean. Do not use filters that are to restrictive, they will prevent the furnace from heating your home properly.
  • If you have a programmable thermostat you may want to keep it on “hold” at night time. In sub-zero weather, the furnace will have to run for a long time in order to bring the house back to normal temperature.
