Our Furnace Care DIY Guide

So your furnace might be running into trouble this winter. This is typical for our company, but it might be atypical for you. What do you do? Do you start stressing out and calling up neighbors or family members to ask them what’s happening? Do you flip through online searches to find a DIY guide to fixing your furnace?

Neither of those options is a good idea. For starters, you need the opinion of a trained professional who is certified in furnace work—not just a neighbor or a family friend. Also, furnace repair in Wabash, IN is not an activity that just anyone can do. You might void a warranty, break a sensitive component, or cause your problem to become much worse over time.

What can you do for your furnace? Well, keep reading and we’ll tell you exactly how you can help.

Step 1: Replace the Filter

The filter of your furnace is an important component. It’s not really meant to clean the air for your comfort (although it does this anyway); it’s mainly supposed to protect the interior components of the system from taking any damage from harmful particles like dust and debris. By cleaning out your air filter and replacing it, you can allow your system to take in more fresh air and run more efficiently.

Step 2: Check Your Detectors

How are your smoke or carbon monoxide detectors? If you don’t really know the answer to that question, then it’s a good time to start investing some time in a maintenance appointment by a professional. These detectors can be the first line of defense against a malfunctioning furnace that turns into a safety hazard.

Step 3: Schedule Maintenance

We mentioned before that maintenance is a great idea for those who need help with their furnaces. Well, if you can’t quite get to the bottom of exactly what’s going wrong with the system, maintenance is a way to get a certain answer. Our pros can run through diagnostics and inspection lists to pinpoint any inefficiencies, repair needs, or anything else that needs adjusting. Seriously, this is a severely underrated service that we can absolutely help you with.

Step 4: Stay Vigilant

Vigilance is a really important thing to keep in mind when you’re a furnace owner. Problems can arise at any moment, and we can’t be at your home to hear the first signs. You’ve got to know when to call us for help, and when you think it’s running okay. If anything seems out of the ordinary, if any noises are keeping you up, or any smells are starting to make your home have a funky odor, then you need to call us.

Step 5: Call for Help

Well, more specifically, call us for help. Our first priority is keeping our community safe and comfortable this winter. You can trust us because we’re local and have been a part of Wabash for years. Our slogan is Collier’s—a company you’ve grown to trust, because more people trust us than other local competitors.
