Pre-Season Furnace Prep Is Key for Reliable Heat

Gross Heating knows pre-season furnace prep is key

When the leaves turn colors in Wisconsin, we start thinking about football, apple picking, and the upcoming holidays. We also start fall cleaning—pre-season preparations for winter, so to speak. We want to be organized, fully stocked, and ready for the cold—and you should make sure your furnace is ready, too. Your heating system may have a dangerous buildup of leaves or maybe it just needs a little preventive care to ensure it’ll work efficiently throughout the upcoming heating season.

When you schedule a fall furnace Clean & Check with an expert like Gross Heating & Air Conditioning, an experienced technician will come to your home, clean the entire unit, make necessary adjustments, and also identify any potential problems. These pre-season checkups are an ideal time to make small repairs that just might mean the difference between a system that operates smoothly in winter and one that will need a major repair.

A Cleaner Furnace Means Cleaner Air

While most people think about allergies in the spring and summer, dust and other contaminants are often trapped inside your home in winter. A regular furnace cleaning can help family members with allergies or other respiratory issues breathe better all year long. While we always recommend replacing the furnace filter on an annual basis, you may want to replace your filter more often if you have pets, use your fireplace regularly, or notice a change in air quality.

Maintenance Saves Money in the Long Run

It makes sense that a well-maintained heating system is less likely to break down than one that is neglected. When it comes to something as important as home heating, an ounce of prevention truly is worth a pound of cure, as it protects your comfort and the investment you’ve made in your furnace.

While some furnace replacements are unavoidable, professionals like Gross Heating are committed to helping their customers get the best performance and longest life from their current system. This is why maintenance agreements are a great option—so you always receive priority service, on time and at the best rates.
