So don't wait - follow these three steps to ensure your heating works when you need it most.

The first freezing day of winter is not the best time to first fire up your heating. Turning on your system gives you a head start on the busy season and helps you avoid high costs, limited technicians, and chilly days at home.




Prepare Yourself





Set your thermostat to a temperature 10 degrees warmer than the room's current temperature to turn on your heating.






Listen for the system to turn on. You may hear a rumbling sound or fans turning on as they begin to blow air through the vents.

Did you hear anything?




Check the vent to feel for airflow, making sure the air coming out feels warm. If it’s only blowing cool air, then something is wrong with your heating.

Is the air warm?
