As the temperature continues to drop, residents in our area know that means snow is right around the corner. With winter fast approaching, it’s important to know how the snow can impact your furnace and HVAC system.
There are two main considerations to think about when it comes to the snow’s effect on your heater. First, that the snow and cold weather can cause an excessive cycling of the system. This obviously drives up utility bills and increases the need for air filters to be changed more frequently while causing the components to wear quicker. The second major source of concern, since snow builds up outside of the home, is ventilation.
