Taking the time to inspect your HVAC system can help to head off costly problems. Every season that passes, dust and dirt accumulates, making it less efficient and costing you more money in utility bills. A winter home heating inspection and cleaning can help your furnace run more efficiently and use less energy. Regular maintenance is one of the best things you can do to guarantee a warm and cozy, worry-free home straight into spring!
Prepare For the Winter Chill with Regular Maintenance
Don’t get left in the cold. Some HVAC experts say up to 75 percent of no-heat calls in the winter are related to a lack of maintenance. Left unserviced, a furnace can stop working suddenly, leaving your family in the cold. The NATE Certified technicians at Princeton Fuel offer a full suite of service agreements along with a customized service plan including: oil-fired water heaters, hydronic heating, and storage tank/environment protection. Keeping your equipment and systems properly serviced can save you hundreds of dollars a year.

Home Heating Checklist
In addition to regular maintenance, stay warm and safe with this home heating inspection checklist:
1. Test functioning of the thermostat. Verify that it’s recording an accurate temperature reading.
2. Change the battery in the carbon monoxide detector. Know the signs of carbon monoxide poisoning.
3. Vacuum and clean around the furnace to prevent a build-up of dust and lint.
4. Check the air filter monthly and clean or replace if needed.
5. Vacuum all the dust from the air registers around the house.
