The weather puts the furnace on my mind

The winter months in Elgin, Illinois are often very cold.

Between December and April, the average temperatures are below freezing. We frequently get snow in Elgin, and it makes traveling to the city a huge pain. I am lucky to have a job with flexible hours. If the roads are bad in the morning, I can go to the office later during the day. Last year we had almost 30 inches of snow. Half of that total came during one particular storm. It started snowing on a Saturday morning and it did not stop snowing until Sunday night. There was snow all over the roads, trees, benches, cars, and buildings. I was happy to have a good working furnace for those cold nights. When the weather was starting to get colder, tuning of the furnace was one of the first things on my mind. I wanted to make sure that all of the mechanical and electrical components on the furnace were ready and working properly. We didn’t have any problems with the furnace last year even when the temperatures were in the single digits for an entire week. The house was warm and cozy even when the weather outside was cold and frigid. I had a full service tune up performed on the furnace this year by an Elgin heating contractor. The guy looked at every single part of the heating system. He changed the furnace filter and checked the connections from the gas to the furnace. He also checked the carbon monoxide detectors and the fire alarm. It really was a full service tune-up.
