The countdown to the new year has already begun, and unusually low temperatures have hit cities all across the nation. It’s not too late to make sure that your home comfort system is ready to keep you warm through the winter.
Here are a few points to consider when scheduling your home heating and cooling maintenance check-up by your local Ruud Contractor:
• Check your thermostat—By ensuring that your thermostat settings are set correctly, you can eliminate wasting energy and have your home adequately heated throughout the winter season
• Check air filters—Often times buildup can clog pipes and filters can get dirty; keep these areas clear for maximum operation
• Check all connections—Ensure all gas, oil, gas pressure, burner combustion and heat exchanger connections are operating correctly. A dirty burner or cracked heat exchanger causes improper burner operation and can cause machinery to operate less efficiently
