We know that your furnace is probably the last thing on your mind, however just because you are not using the system does not mean you can neglect to maintain it. In order to keep your home units running efficiently, a homeowner must take out-of-season precaution to prevent disasters from happening in the future.
If you have not already done so, change the furnace filters. Gas furnaces produce carbon monoxide that exit the home through vents. A clogged filter can cause the odorless gas to backup, creating a dangerous living environment. For additional safety, install a carbon monoxide detector near the furnace.
If you have an older furnace, regular and end-of-season maintenance is important as the system is not equip with shut-off valves that detect when a problem has occurred. Over time, the furnace can develop tiny cracks invisible to the naked eye which in turn allows carbon monoxide to leak out.
