Baby it’s cold outside! Temecula and Murrietta homeowners can experience temperatures as low as 28 degrees during the winter months. Basic heater/furnace maintenance can minimize unexpected problems for your family. You can schedule a technician for a tune up of your heater system each year, but there are simple things you can do yourself. Be cautious and before you begin, be sure to power off your system. Also- make sure you know how to relight the pilot light.
At a minimum, changing the air filter in any forced air furnace on a monthly basis is recommended. A good programmable thermostat will remind you when to the change the filter. Choose your filter based on your sensitivity to air borne particles. Vacuum the blower and accessible areas of the furnace every few months. If your furnace blower is powered by a V-belt connected to an electric motor, check the belt for fraying or cracking. For all types of furnaces, make sure the outside vents and chimneys are clear of leaves, nests, and other debris. These blockages can cause carbon monoxide hazards. Our technicians at WELLS PLUMBING & AIR can perform heater and maintenance services that can help protect your family while keeping your home warm and cozy.
Heat pumps can supplement the output and or lower the high cost of traditional heating and cooling systems. Environmentally friendly; a heat pump can move air from one area in your home to another.
