During the winter, heater maintenance is on everyone’s mind. Stay on top of your heating system’s maintenance, and it’ll be there to serve you when you need it most. The experts from Home Warranty of America (HWA) offer the following tips for heater maintenance:
- Stay ahead of problems with a little preventative maintenance. Have your heating system serviced annually by a competent professional for efficiency and safety.
- Keep your air clean by using clean filters. Replace filters as often as recommended by the manufacturer.
- Let your system breathe. Make sure your registers are not blocked by furniture, carpets or drapes.
- Clean your ducts and vents. To increase the efficiency and life of your system and clean the air in your home, have your ductwork cleaned professionally, especially if you see debris, insects and other blockages.
