Even though the Houston area doesn’t get terribly cold, it is still important to have your furnace ready for the winter months. There are a number of ways you can keep your furnace up and running during winter time. Use these tips to keep your furnace up and running.
Clean or Replace the Filter
The purpose of a furnace filter is to catch particles flowing through it which in return delivers warm air to the rest of the house. Particles include dust, lint, pollen, dust mites, and bacteria in general. Over time, the filter will become full and either needs to be replaced or simply cleaned. Filters should be changed anywhere from 30 to 90 days. A more expensive filter could last longer.
Check the Blower Motor
The blower motor’s purpose is to push air through the heat exchanger and then ultimately through the house. If the blower motor is not functioning correctly, then it can cause strain on the entire furnace and your electric bill. If your furnace is louder than usual then it may indicate your blower motor needs to be repaired or replaced.
Clean Vents and Ductwork
Over time, air ducts and vents can collect dust, lint, hair, and much more. This will resist airflow and make your house colder than you wish. Additionally, it can spread bacteria throughout the house which can make family members sick. Cleaning these areas out will allow more airflow and increase the quality of your air.
