If you’ve already gone through the process and have a new unit, here’s a few ideas on getting it ready for the winter months.
Check Your Heating Vents
Specifically, you want to check to make sure your heating vents are uncovered. That means making sure you haven’t moved the sofa over the vent in the living room while you were vacuuming. Check any vents in closets to make sure you haven’t piled books or even a laundry basket on top.
Warm air from your furnace can’t get through otherwise. When heat backs up from a covered vent, it can cause your furnace to overheat.
Check The Thermostat
This is the part of your heating system that might get overlooked. However, your thermostat is a very important aspect of your heating system. Troubleshooting is one of the first steps. That means checking the obvious like making sure your thermostat is turned on.
Double checking that you have new batteries installed is also important. With a programmable thermostat it’s critical to make sure the override is not being engaged.
We can look after every aspect of furnace installation in Hamilton for you. That includes connecting up the gas supply. Our technicians are licensed and understand all of the local regulations as well as the various configurations needed.
A Basic Cleaning
As far as your thermostat goes, a basic cleaning is another best practice to get rid of any dust and dirt that’s accumulated. Making sure all the mechanical and electrical components are in good working order is a good idea too.
An electronics air cleaner can get rid of any particles once you’ve carefully opened the case.
Check Those Burners Too
Burners need to be checked before the cold weather to make sure they are free of debris and dust. Along with industry-leading furnace installation in Hamilton services, we can look after cleaning those for you. Our experts are able to remove them to gain full access to the chamber interior and sweep it out with a stiff brush to make sure it’s clean.
We can also clean the chamber walls for you to make sure the combustion process helps to hold down your heating bills.
