Things To Do Before You Turn Your Furnace On

Although it may seem rather simple, heating up your home requires more work than just flipping on the switch for your furnace. However, many property owners are often unaware of even the simplest of tasks that must be completed first, which can unfortunately be the reason that their system doesn’t work as it should when the temperatures drop. But since you’ve come across this post, you can rest assured knowing that you won’t be one of them! Let’s take a look at some of the things you must do before turning your furnace on for good:


Things To Do Before You Turn Your Furnace On
Replace the air filter: If your filter hasn’t been touched since last winter, chances are that much dirt and debris has built up during the spring and summer seasons. If you have a disposable filter in your system currently, start fresh in the fall by replacing it entirely. Doing so will ensure that your furnace operates properly from the start of the season!

Rearrange furniture: Believe it or not, your furniture has a major impact on your furnace’s ability to heat things up. If the area surrounding your furnace has become storage space, you may have unknowingly placed a box or bin in front of your system, blocking something that needs to be kept open. Additionally, if you have couches, beds or tables directly in front of radiators, it makes it rather difficult for the heat to circulate throughout the room. Therefore, you’ll need to do a bit of rearranging before your system kicks in!

Inspect equipment: Starting with the furnace’s blower belt if your system is so equipped, make sure that it hasn’t been damaged since the last time you used it. If it has, you’ll need to contact an HVAC expert like ourselves to repair the part – something you’ll want to do way before days and nights become unbearably cold. And aside from the furnace itself, you’ll want to check your breaker to guarantee that power is even making its way to the system.

Test your alarms: Okay, this one isn’t directly related to your furnace’s success, but it is related to safety! Considering that furnaces may produce carbon monoxide, it is essential that you have carbon monoxide detectors strategically placed throughout your home or commercial building. Before your system kicks in, make sure that they are still able to alert you in the event of an emergency, and if not, replace the batteries or the alarm itself right away.

Get an inspection: When it all comes down to it, the best thing you can do before you turn your furnace on is have it inspected by a professional. For those of you located in Stamford, Greenwich, Darien or New Canaan, Connecticut, we at Airtech of Stamford are available to help commercial and residential customers with all furnace needs. Not only can we inspect your equipment, but we can also provide you with solutions where needed if any problems should arise!
