It’s always good to be on top of the game.
I was taught this at a young age to always start things before the deadline and to never wait until the last minute. As I got older I realized it is harder to be prepared as responsibilities and other things were going on in my life. I tried to keep this motto in the back of my head and I carried it with me to an extent. When it comes to my home I like to always make sure that it is clean and maintained. And the motto certainly carried into properly maintaining my HVAC system, especially the furnace for the winter time. I tried not to wait until the cold weather hits to maintain my furnace. Plus once cold weather does come you will have little effort to call your HVAC technician and you’re not scrambling for help. If your furnace ever does malfunction you could have it properly repaired before any indoor heating is necessary. I like to try to replace the air filter in my furnace at least every three months. I also will consider upgrading the filter or changing it out depending on the wear and what it looks like. I also like to clean my air vents and have my HVAC technician come to my home to clean my air ducts. I try to do all of this in a timely manner and have it all done by the end of October. This gives me enough time to prepare for the colder temperatures ahead.
