Time to Crank up that Furnace
Just because your heating system worked great last season doesn't mean it will work well when you need it, or that it will work efficiently. Systems that run on fossil fuels accumulate combustion build-up that can harm performance.
Have your system inspected and serviced by a professional before the cold weather sets in. Annual service should include:
* Air filter replacement for hot air systems,
* Oil filter and nozzle replacement for oil-fueled systems,
* Checking the boiler pressure gauge and low water cutoff for hot water systems, as well as draining, cleaning and refilling the entire system to remove accumulated sediment.
