Preparing Your Furnace for the Off-season

The end of winter is officially on the horizon with the weather warming up in the Bay Area you can feel spring just around the corner. Before you turn off your furnace and forget about it until the following year, you’ll want to get it ready for its annual hibernation. There are a number of things you can do now to prep your system so it’s ready to go next season.

Flipping the Switch

There was some time where it seemed like this day wouldn’t come, but the moment has finally arrived for you to flip the switch on your thermostat from heating to cooling. Before you set it and forget it, look through your warranty. Most warranties require annual service and maintenance in order to maintain the warranty. If you have any questions about your warranty, the pros at Contra Costa Heating & AC will gladly help you.

Service During the Off-Season

Now is the best time to schedule your regular furnace service in the Bay Area. Any problems can be addressed and fixed before the moment comes to turn your system back on once more for the season.

A clean filter keeps your system operating at peak efficiency, boosts your indoor air quality and works to extend the life of your HVAC system.
