ilters: We say this very often, but it’s crucial for you to change your furnace filters coming into the fall/winters months.

Smell your furnace: Your sense of smell can protect your home more that you think? Did I leave the burner on? Is something on fire? Is the sewer backing up? Maybe you can relate with some of these things. So, this fall take a few minutes to walk into your furnace closet and take a good whiff. If you notice any smells that don’t seem correct, connect with one of our professionals immediately. 

Vacuum your furnace closet: Seriously, just vacuum your furnace closet out. You may notice lint and dust can collect in there. Well, if you let it be, it becomes a major fire hazard in the winter; since your furnace is not running. Take five minutes and vacuum out your furnace closet. You won’t regret it.
