Warm Is The Word

Winter is a wonderful season. Cuddling up in a fluffy blanket with a cup of hot cocoa while the wind whips around outside is such a great feeling. Great, that is, as long as your Lubbock home’s heating system is in top working condition.

Keeping your heater working well isn’t difficult. You can take some simple steps to keep it in good shape to ensure that it will be effective in keeping your home toasty warm when the temperature drops. Keep your heater working perfectly with the following tips.

Keep Air Filters Clean

One of the easiest ways to keep the warm air flowing is to check your furnace’s air filter and change it when needed. When a filter becomes clogged with dirt, dust, and debris, heat cannot move through it to get to the air ducts and out to the vents in the house. The filter generally only needs to be changed once at the beginning of the cold weather season.

Have A Professional Inspection Done

If you want to make sure everything is in tip-top shape prior to firing up your furnace for the season, having a professional technician perform regular maintenance is a great idea. A technician can also provide information on proper home insulation, which also lessens the strain on your heater’s output. This can prevent problems later on that could become major issues in the middle of winter.

Add Moisture To Warm Up The Air With A Humidifier

Indoor heat can create extremely dry air. Air that contains moisture feels warmer than air that is dry. A humidifier helps to add moisture to the air, making it feel warmer so that you can dial back the thermostat, giving your heater a bit of a break.

It takes just a little planning and attention to help keep your heater working perfectly. For more tips on helping your heater perform perfectly, go to or call (806) 589-1014.
