Sounds crazy, but now is the time to prep that Furnace.

Sounds crazy, but now is the time to prep that Furnace.

Now that we are finally feeling some cooler temps, its time to make sure your furnace is ready to provide your home with ample heating performance. There are plenty of things you can do to prepare your furnace this winter:

  1. Make sure you check and change your furnace filter. This is the most important, yet most overlooked aspect of preparing your furnace for the coming winter. A clogged furnace filter can easily hamper your furnace’s overall performance and lower your home’s indoor air quality. You should always replace your old filter with a new, clean filter at the start of each season.
  2. Check and properly set your thermostat. Make sure your thermostat is able to start your furnace without any issues. If you haven’t upgraded to a programmable thermostat, now is the time to do so. With a programmable thermostat, you’ll be able to control your home’s temperature while you’re asleep or away.
  3. Check the flue for debris and other obstructions. Take a look at the flue and make sure there’s no significant soot buildup. Also be on the lookout for leaves, birds’ nests and other debris that could cause a fire hazard while your furnace is in operation.
  4. Inspect and clean the burners. Before you start your furnace, inspect the burners for any signs of debris or rust buildup. Use a small, stiff brush and a shop vacuum to clean out the burners and surrounding components.
  5. If you’re using propane or fuel oil, fill up your tank. Make sure your furnace isn’t starting on an empty stomach. Call your local gas or oil supplier to top off your propane or fuel oil tank for the winter.
  6. Remove any and all obstructions from the vents. Move all linens, furniture, boxes and other potential obstructions away from the supply and return air vents.

As we monitor and learn more about the spread of Coronavirus in our communities, we want to be transparent about what we’re doing as a company to protect our customers and employees.

Protecting Our Employees and Customers

As our employees interact with customers and the general public, we have taken steps to limit exposure to the virus. We have put restrictions on travel, are postponing large-scale events, limiting the size of meetings, providing remote-work solutions, and continue to reinforce safe behavior in every environment – from customer homes and businesses to our office, where we have ramped up deep-cleaning. We are partnering with manufacturers to source as many sanitizers and protective supplies as possible and are prioritizing distribution to our employees. They will sanitize their hands and will be wearing personal protective equipment when interacting with customers; including masks, gloves, and shoe covers. Additionally, we have protocols in place that activate closures, disinfection and appropriate quarantine procedures based on recommendations by government and health agencies.

Assisting Our Employees

We are in continuous communication with our employees reminding them about the importance of good hygiene, providing them with health education and support whenever needed. Employees who feel ill have been told to not report to work and we have specific quarantine and communication procedures in place should an employee be diagnosed with COVID-19 or is asked to self-isolate by a public health authority, and to provide comprehensive benefits to support them.

What We Ask of You

We are taking every precaution to ensure the safety and health of our communities, but we need your help. If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms and have a scheduled appointment, please let our office professionals know so that we can discuss options with you to ensure our collective well-being.

We truly appreciate your cooperation and understanding!
