With the end of October approaching, we look forward to the holiday season. Unfortunately, colder weather comes along with this. Although this time can be a joyous period for many, we have to make sure that we are staying safe and healthy through the winter season. It is important to plan ahead and prepare our homes and ourselves for what lies ahead. The following preventative measures can help us prepare.

Doing a few maintenance checks, cleaning, and replacements will ensure your furnace is fully functional for the winter months. It is highly recommended to begin this process sooner rather than later to avoid having problems at inconvenient times. Make sure to disconnect your furnace from its power source, and then follow the tips below to get started!
