There are a variety of home maintenance musts for fall that will help you keep you home humming and your repair or replacement costs down, which we wanted to provide for our reading audience to ensure they are prepared for the season ahead!
Replace Your Furnace Filters
Furnace filters are a jailhouse for dust, adding to allergies in the home and making it more difficult to heat your home – resulting in an increased heating bill and uncomfortable living conditions.
However, sometimes an outdated furnace will need more than a simple filter replacement and require replacing entirely. Although this comes with an initial investment, replacing an old furnace often results in the most cost effective solution to resolve your heating concerns.
Schedule a Boiler Maintenance Appointment
Regular residential boiler maintenance checks can help you avoid the need for early repairs, and should be checked annually. Older boilers will often make unusual noises, but knowing what is a normal “clunk” and what is of concern often takes the listening ear of a professional.
If you notice your home is no long heating properly, or your boiler is emitting a strong smell or metallic scent, you should schedule an immediate repair as this could signal a gas leak.
