I thought after moving to the South, I would’ve escaped the tough cold temperatures, however I was wrong because all of us have been experiencing temperatures that I thought were only possible in the northern area of the nation.
A couple weeks ago, I woke up & the temperature was 7 degrees & the wind chill made it actually feel as though it was -9 degrees… I hadn’t felt temperatures that frosty since I lived in the North, so this occurrence came as a genuine surprise to me! My saving grace was knowing that my gas heating machine was well-equipped to handle these brutal temperatures.
To keep my gas furnace running properly, I constantly make sure that I am up-to-date with all my repair appointments. In addition, I perform my own repairs so that I don’t run into too many problems. One thing I constantly make sure that I do is to keep my air filter clean. I have a permanent air filter installed & though it costs a bit more than the regular air filters, I actually enjoy using them because they create less waste for the environment… With a price tag of around $68, the permanent air filter can be used for as long as 5 years. And the best thing of all is, they are washable, so I can wash my filter every 30 afternoons or as needed. I recognize it’s a better option than the regular air filter, which creates way too much waste as you will need to change them every 60 to 90 afternoons… Regardless of which air filter you use for your gas heating machine, the most pressing thing to do is to make sure that it’s clean. The cleaner the air filter, the better the air flow, which could potentially prevent crucial complications with your gas furnace and increase the life of it.
