Before you know it, air conditioners all around will be at full blast battling the stifling heat. Sure, it’s hard to envision as you scoot closer to your fireplace and pull that afghan over your shoulders in an effort to stay warm, but spring will soon be here. Now is as good of time as any to start thinking about what you need to do to prepare your furnace for the months of summer. Here are a few important steps to take to ensure your heater turns on when it starts to cool again next fall.

The first thing you will want to do is get any lingering repairs done. This would mean a call into your Bonney Lake heater repair service. Your heater could be giving you any number of signals that something isn’t quite right. like a drop in temperature, a funny noise when starting up or low air pressure. You will be tempted to procrastinate, and leave the problem to deal with in the fall, but that’s not a smart move. Next fall is quite a ways away, and you could forget, then turn on your heater only to discover it doesn’t work.

The second thing you need to do is change your filter. This is something that needs to be done on a regular basis, but we tend to forget sometimes. Changing the filter before you shut your system down ensures a fresh filter for when you fire it up again next fall.

Lastly, it is a good idea to schedule a maintenance appointment. Again, this is something you shouldn’t procrastinate and leave until next fall. Time flies, and before you know it, you will once again be turning your heater on to keep warm.
