The Northeast is known to have some pretty brutal winters starting about this time of year. It is good to get ready for the coming cold weather now instead of the first day where temperatures get below freezing. At Medford Wellington Service, we want to give you some tips on how you can be more prepared for winter before it begins.

Check your furnace

One mistake that many homeowners is that they wait until the last minute to turn on their furnace, often the night before the coldest day of the season so far. There are times when homeowners turn on the furnace and nothing happens. This is the worst case scenario for some. This means that at 8pm on a cold Friday night, you are without heat. We recommend that you don’t wait until that time to turn your furnace on. Do it now. Let it run for a little while and if any problems arise, you can get them checked out before the cold sets in.

Get your furnace checked

Although this means a little money out of your pocket, it could save you a ton of money down the road. Hiring a professional to do a routine check of your furnace can mean catching a fatal carbon-monoxide leak or replacing a loose gasket that you didn’t spot. For less than $100 you can sleep more comfortably at night and not have to worry about whether your heat will go out in the middle of the night.
