anuary brings crisp air and cozy nights by the fireplace. But for your HVAC system, it can be a time of stress. Here at Gentry, we want to help you keep your home comfortable and your furnace running smoothly all winter long.

Preventative Maintenance is Key

Just like your car needs a regular tune-up, your HVAC system benefits greatly from preventative maintenance. Here’s what a professional technician can do during a January service call:

  • Inspect and clean: They’ll check your furnace filter, clean the burner assembly, and inspect other vital components to ensure efficient operation.
  • Lubricate moving parts: Keeping everything well-lubricated prevents wear and tear, extending the lifespan of your system.
  • Check for safety hazards: A technician can identify potential problems like carbon monoxide leaks, keeping your home safe.

Optimizing Your System for Winter

Here are some additional tips to help your HVAC system conquer the January chill:

  • Change your air filter: A clogged filter restricts airflow and makes your furnace work harder. Aim to replace it monthly during peak seasons.
  • Program your thermostat: Set a consistent temperature for the day and night to avoid unnecessary strain on your system.
  • Seal air leaks: Drafty windows and doors can force your furnace to work overtime. Seal any leaks to improve efficiency and comfort.
  • Upgrade your thermostat: Consider a smart thermostat that allows for remote control and programming for optimal efficiency.
