January 07, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Atlanta, Georgia - Before the cold winter months set in, it's important that homeowners have properly maintained their furnace or heating unit to ensure proper function when it's needed most.
Phil Montgomery, owner of Atlanta Heating and Air Conditioning, offers the following tips.

Heating systems need to be professionally checked at least once a year. This will keep the unit running well, ensuring it is using less energy and heating more efficiently.

"I recommend a professional service once a year, but I also give my clients tips on things they can do at home to keep their furnace from needing repair," says Cliff Montgomery, Atlanta heating and air conditioning expert.

  • Keep objects away from vents to prevent fires. Also be sure nothing flammable is near the furnace itself.
  • Check all openings to the outside to be sure air isn't leaking out anywhere.
  • Lower the thermostat when you're out.
  • Replace filters regularly.

  • "I recommend checking your filter every month," says Montgomery, whose Atlanta heater repair business has provided excellent service for more than 40 years. "Plan to change your filter at least every three months.

    Other tips include:

  • Clean the furnace with a vacuum to remove any dust and debris, both inside and out.
  • Keep the safety switch on the furnace door unobstructed.
  • Keep the area near your furnace free of debris to prevent fires.
  • Make sure visible wiring has no signs of burns or unraveling.
  • Install a carbon monoxide detector.
  • Be sure the temperature gauge on your thermostat moves correctly.

  • With proper care and attention, a heating unit can keep homeowners warm throughout the winter months.
