2 Heating Services to Consider Scheduling Before Winter
The Minnesota winter is almost proverbial throughout the country for how cold it can get—and it’s going to be on us sooner than we think. You rely on the heating system in your home to make those long months tolerable, so don’t take any chances. To stay snug and cozy this winter, you should consider having certain crucial services done on your heater before the big cold hits. Heating technicians have busy schedules during winter helping people with emergencies, so take advantage of the slower fall season to contact the Andover, MN heating service experts at Air Mechanical Inc.
Here are two services you should get taken care of before the cold spell:
Change your air filters: If you use a furnace to heat your house, you need to make sure you have a fresh filter ready for the winter. The filter protects your furnace from airborne debris. When winter starts, you will need to change the filter at least once a month, but make sure that you don’t start out the icy season with a dirty filter that could lead to damage as well as a reduction in air flow and a drop in air quality. Schedule a maintenance check: Whether you use a boiler, furnace, or geothermal heater to provide warm air for your home, you should have a professional HVAC technician examine it to make sure it will perform to the standards you need for winter and reduce the risk of a costly and uncomfortable breakdown. A professional will notice difficult-to-spot problems in your system, such as corrosion in the ducts or inefficient heating. We recommend an annual maintenance visit—and the fall is one of the best times to schedule one, since it will give you ample time to get any necessary repairs done. Don’t leave something as important as your heating system to an amateur. Only professionals should take care of these services to prevent breakdowns during the most inconvenient of times.
