Preparing Your Furnace for the Off-season

March 31, 2015

The end of winter is officially in sight with the weather warming up in Portland you can feel spring just around the corner. Before you shut off your furnace and disregard it until next year, you’ll want to get it primed for its annual hibernation. There are a few things you can do now to ready your system so it’s ready to go next season.

Flipping the Switch

There was some time where it seemed like this day wouldn’t come, but the moment has finally arrived for you to flip the switch on your thermostat from heating to cooling. Before you set it and forget it, check out your warranty. Some warranties require annual service and maintenance in order to uphold the warranty. If you have any questions about your warranty, the team at Three Rivers Heating & Cooling will happily help you.

Service During the Off-Season

Now is the best time to schedule your annual furnace service in Portland. Any problems can be addressed and fixed before the time comes to turn your system back on once again for the season. You’ll be able to flip your switch to “heating” this fall and rest easy knowing that things will be operating as they should.

Change Your Filters

A clean filter keeps your system operating at peak efficiency, enhances your indoor air quality and helps extend the life of your HVAC system.
