As the temperatures begin to drop, we can look forward to the changing colors of the trees, holidays with the family, and cool evenings with hot cocoa. It also means your air conditioner gets a break and your heater comes out of hibernation. There are a few simple things you can do to help prepare your heater to run at its best.
- Make sure any combustible products are stored away from your heating system.
- Replace your air filters, 30-90 days
- If you have an outdoor unit, it is important to keep the system free of debris.

- Make sure your registers are clear of obstruction.
