Shutting down Your Furnace for the Summer
Though your furnace has performed well all winter long, you won’t have much use for it once temperatures climb over 100 degrees. To ensure that your furnace is ready to perform once the temperatures cool down again, consider shutting it down for the summer. Properly “summarizing” your furnace can protect it from damage and help save money on utilities.
There are a number of important components you should inspect when shutting your furnace down. These components include the bearings, heater exchange, pilot light, and motor. You might also consider shutting off the power to your furnace and closing the gas valve to reduce the chances of a leak. Shutting down a furnace for the summer can be a tricky task for the inexperienced, which is why it’s best left to the professionals.
