Early Snow and Cold a Reminder to Check Your Furnace With the average first snow for the lower elevations of the Front Range being in mid-October it was a shock to wake up to snow in many areas on September 11! If you haven’t yet, now is a good time to check your furnace and make sure it is running efficiently before winter really sets in.

Here are a few tips:

  1. Check your furnace is inspected by a Rheem Pro Partner technician and tuned-up annually to ensure your heating system is at peak efficiency.
  2. Keep the area around the furnace so that the air flow is not restricted.
  3. heck your furnace filter monthly to make sure air flow isn’t restricted causing a loss of efficiency or even a breakdown.
  4. Keep your thermostat at one setting, turning it up or down will result in more energy being sed. Consider a programmable thermostat to manage your home climate.
  5. If your furnace is 12 years or older, consider replacing it for a high efficiency system. If you plan on staying in your home for a few years the investment will pay-off in lower heating bills, more comfort and a higher property value. A Rheem Pro Partner contractor will be happy to show you all the advantages including rebates and utility company incentives.
