As our Minnesota winter enters its final stretches, we want to give you some sage advice about heating and taking care of your HVAC system before the snowflake season ends. Here are some of the words of wisdom from our local heating expert, Keith Hill, the manager of technical support at Minnesota Air, on what you should be doing to prepare yourself and your HVAC this month.
Don’t Forget To Change Your Filter
We may have some days that get warm enough to feel like a nice spring day, but that doesn’t mean we can turn off our furnaces just yet. Nights get colder and you may find yourself turning it up as your home cools down.
“Since our furnaces run less at this time of the year, we tend to take them for granted. Don’t forget about the basics – filter changes in particular,” says Keith.
“Even though the furnace doesn’t run that often, it still needs a clean filter to allow the right amount of air to keep it running a the proper temperatures.”
