How to Prepare Your Furnace for the Winter

How to Prepare Your Furnace for the Winter

Now that summer’s finally over, it’s time to get your furnace ready for the winter season. There are a few things that homeowners should do to prepare their furnace for the winter. 

The first thing you should do is change the air filter. Not only will a clean air filter be good for your family’s health, but it will also keep your furnace running smoothly and keep dust particles out of your HVAC system. Next, turn on the heat setting on your thermostat. Once the furnace is on, open every air vent in your home. Not only do blocked vents lead to higher energy bills, but they can also cause your furnace to overheat and eventually breakdown. Most importantly, ensure there is a working carbon monoxide detector on every floor of your home. 

Keeping your furnace well maintained will ensure that it runs smoothly and efficiently throughout the winter. Annual furnace maintenance checks should always be completed by a trained professional. Licensed technicians will thoroughly clean your furnace and check for the correct gas pressure and temperature rise. Additionally, they will also check for any cracks in the heat exchanges for carbon monoxide levels coming out of your furnace exhaust. Cracks can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, which can be dangerous and harmful to your family’s health. HVAC technicians can repair these cracks and ensure your family is comfortable and safe during the winter months. 

It is also advised to cover your central air conditioner during the winter months to protect it from the elements and to keep leaves and debris from accumulating inside the unit. We can provide you with a factory-fitted cover that is designed specifically for your air conditioner. For any help, please do not hesitate to contact a licensed professional at Twintech Heating & Cooling. 

At Twintech, we want to ensure you and your family stay warm this winter. If your furnace needs to be repaired or maintained, visit our website or give us a call at 1-844-894-6832. We can schedule an appointment with one of our reliable technicians, as well as offer more information about the products and services we offer. Call Twintech today!

by Rita, Scarborough on Twintech Heating and Cooling
We were so pleased with their service

When our old oil furnace finally broke down we decided it was time to finally convert to natural gas and finally install central air conditioning at the same time. Knowing it was going to be a significant investment for us, we wanted to make the right choice. Twintech came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. From the first contact with the salesperson, until the final touches on the installation, we were so pleased with their service. Everyone from the company was so friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Best of all, the cost was very competitive. We would certainly recommend Twintech to anyone requiring HVAC work in their home.

Within a couple of hours, we had a new unit up and running!

During the hottest week in the summer our old A/C decided to call it quits. I called Twintech Heating & Cooling after receiving a referral from a family member; came highly rated for being an honest, family-run business, who appreciates their customers. Dave was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and book a late evening appointment to walk through the specifics. Greg and Mitch arrived exactly on time a few days later, were very polite and friendly, and within a couple of hours had a new unit up and running. I also received a follow-up call to ensure we were happy with the Amana.

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.

by Bill, Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling
Proud to support this local company

Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.

by Taz on Twintech Heating and Cooling
