There are a few steps that you should take before firing up the furnace to beat the cold weather. Testing your heating unit to make sure that it is working properly is a simple, but one of essential tasks. Get your heating system inspected by an HVAC professional annually. Manufacturers say their furnaces will last longer with regular maintenance.
Test your heat and thermostat. When you switch on the heat, you should hear it kick on right away. Change the battery backup in the thermostat so you know it’ll run all winter. Unless your HVAC is a heat pump (in which case, don’t cover it at all because it runs all year), cover the condenser to protect it from falling icicles. First check the owner’s manual to see if your motor is the kind that needs lubricating. If it does, turn off the power, open the cover and clean the caps covering the bearings. Then remove the caps and lubricate the bearings. If you have an oil-powered furnace, replace your filter and nozzle and check the tank level.
