If your furnace is more than 15 years old, or you’re plagued with high energy bills, uneven heat and frequent repair costs, you may wonder if it is going to make it through another winter.
If you have doubts about your furnace handling the coming winter blasts, you really have nothing to fear. Yes, there are plenty of HVAC contractors in Chicago, but there aren’t many like Heatmasters. We’ve served Chicago area customers since 1950, and we have some tips and to-dos to help during the coming winter months.
Regular Maintenance Appointments
The best time to schedule maintenance appointments is during the “shoulder seasons,” that is, in the spring and fall before the heat of summer and the frigid temperatures of winter arrive. By scheduling regular maintenance appointments with an HVAC contractor in Chicago like Heatmasters, you can ensure your system is running at its best when it’s needed most.
Turn Down the Heat
Try lowering the temperature in your home to 68° during the day and even lower at night when bedding helps keep you warm. By lowering the temperature at night and when you’re away, you can easily save 10% on heating costs and prolong the life of your furnace.
Change the Air Filters
Accumulated dust and dirt in the filtering system are a common cause of breakdowns. Change your filters at least every 90 days.
