Pro Tips for Your Yearly Furnace Cleaning

Maintaining your furnace is key to keep your heat running and avoid expensive repair or replacement costs. Keep these tips in mind to keep your furnace in working condition

When cleaning your furnace, be sure to start off by turning off both electricity and gas. Next, after ensuring safety, you will want to check your air filter and see if it needs replacing, which generally will be around every 3 months. Another thing you will want to keep in mind is to clean the flame sensor. This ensures that if there is a fire, the flame sensor will be able to pick it up and shut off power to avoid a large fire.
