How to Prepare Your Heating System for Winter

Before winter arrives, one of the most important things you can do is prepare your heating system to make sure it’s clean and safe to run. These preparations will not only guarantee the safety of you and your family but will also ensure that your heating system runs as efficiently as possible, minimizing fuel costs in the process.

Preparing your heating system is especially important if you live in a warmer area of the country, especially in areas like Texas where heaters aren’t used as often. Though they may not be in use, heaters left off for months on end can still get dirty and develop other problems such as rust. As a result, most heating systems problems are only discovered after the heating system is turned on once it gets cold—talk about poor timing!

Thankfully, there are a few basic things you can do to ensure that your heating system is in top condition for winter. Some of these preparations include:

  • Changing the air filters
  • Inspecting blowers, chimneys, and other ventilation
  • Cleaning the furnace and heat exchanger(s)
  • Testing thermostats and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors
  • Having an annual inspection performed by a heating system professional
