Although it’s the beginning of May, the outside temperature remains cold. The gas furnace is still not working hard to keep the beach condo nice as well as warm. I am looking forward to finally shutting it down as well as opening some windows. I’m exhausted of paying such high biweekly utility bills as well as breathing in the same stale air. I realize, but, that even when the gas furnace is no longer heating the home, I can’t completely forget about it. At the end of the gas furnace, I always make sure to complete a series of tasks to ensure the gas furnace is ready again when needed. I believe a jammed air filter forces the gas furnace to job harder to pull air through the system. This results in longer heating cycles, higher energy use, as well as more wear as well as tear on components. It also decreases comfort as well as increases the options of a extravagant repair. During the Winter, I change the air filter every week, as well as I end the season with a clean filter. I hire a local Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C corporation for a thorough inspection, cleaning as well as adjustment of the gas furnace. The worker identifies any small troubles as well as corrects them before they turn into a extravagant breakdown. I have a new condensing gas furnace which generates a great deal of heat by using minimal fuel. It requires an external intake pipe for the air supply. If this pipe becomes restricted or jammed, the gas furnace’s efficiency is affected as well as there’s the worry of carbon monoxide buildup. I check to be sure the intake as well as exhaust pipes on the exterior of the beach condo are free of ice, snow, bugs, dove nests as well as other debris.
