Now is the time to look at preparing your furnace for the winter months here in El Paso, Tx.  A few simple maintenance tips can help the furnace, ductwork, and other HVAC components to run efficiently.

So how cold does it get in El Paso? Well, even though we live in a usually hot and dry desert, we do experience a pretty large temperature drop for our winters and sometimes we do get snow. The cold season in El Paso Texas lasts from about November 19 to February 18 with an average daily high temperature below 64°F. The coldest day of the year is early January, with an average low of 32°F and high of 56°F. Daily high temperatures start rapidly falling in November from an average 72°F through December to 56°F. Having an efficient system can help save you money on monthly energy bills.
This can also help to keep your home warm in the upcoming months. By having your furnace inspected now, you can help to avoid an unexpected breakdown this winter.
  1. Get a routine maintenance and inspection of your heating system to make sure it is in good working order.
  2. Replace your heater’s air filter monthly. Your heating system will work less hard, use less energy and last longer as a result. Most homeowners can replace filters and do such simple tasks as cleaning and removing dust from vents.
  3. Reverse the switch on your ceiling fans so they blow upward, toward the ceiling. By reversing the fan’s direction, the blades move air upward in winter. This is especially valuable in high ceiling rooms, where the heat that naturally rises is forced back down into the room.
  4. Make sure to clear any plants, leaves, or debris away from the condenser of the air conditioner unit or heat pump. This can help prevent any build-ups and clogging of the system. Clearing away the debris from the air conditioner unit can help keep it in good condition for next spring.
