Preparing Your Furnace for the Off-season03/31/2015 The end of winter is officially in sight with the weather warming up in Carlsbad you can feel spring just around the corner. Before you switch off your furnace and stop thinking about it for another year, you’ll want to get it prepped for its annual hibernation. There are a few things you can do now to prime your system so it’s ready to go next season. Flipping the Switch There was awhile where it felt as though this day wouldn’t come, but the moment has finally arrived for you to flip the switch on your thermostat from heating to cooling. Before you set it and forget it, review your warranty. Most warranties require yearly service and maintenance in order to maintain the warranty. If you have any questions about your warranty, the experts at Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services will certainly help you. Service During the Off-Season Now is the best time to schedule your yearly furnace service in Carlsbad. Any concerns can be addressed and corrected before the moment comes to turn your system back on once again for the season. You’ll be able to flip your switch to “heating” this fall and rest easy knowing that things will be functioning as they should. Change Your Filters We probably sound like a broken record, but switching out your air filters is one of the easiest and most important things you can do for your HVAC system as a homeowner. A clean filter keeps your system running at peak efficiency, boosts your indoor air quality and works to extend the life of your HVAC system. We know there are other things you are thinking of doing as the weather warms up, but having one less thing to worry about makes every season more pleasant. We know you don’t want to think about it getting cold again, but when it does, your furnace will be prepared for it.
