snowy houseFor New Hampshire homeowners, you may be asking yourself, “why would I want to mess with my HVAC system?” There are various reasons why you should ensure your system is prepared for winter. From reducing your bill to extending the life of your system, the possibilities are endless! To ensure you stay warm this winter and save yourself some money, here are a few actions you can take on your own!

Air Filters

When you’re trying to heat your home, dirty filters make this a much more difficult task. Because they can get dirty very quickly, you should be replacing your filters at least once, every three months. If you are a smoker, live in a dusty area or have pets, replacing filters can be increased to monthly. Regularly replacing your filters will not only improve airflow, but it will also prevent caught debris from circulating throughout your home.


Like other powered items, over time, your furnace can get worn down and in need of some serious TLC. To ensure you don’t damage your system, you should call A+ Plumbing, Heating & Cooling to schedule any necessary maintenance. We will check the belts, electrical switches, gas pressure, motors and thermostats. We perform these checks to ensure that your system is running efficiently, but we’re also able to address and repair any issues before they occur.

Heat Pump

While heat pumps are relatively easy to maintain, you want to ensure that they stay clear during any heavy snowstorms.


To ensure that your thermostat is accurately controlling your home’s heat and air, you can purchase a separate thermostat or contact a professional. The experts at A+ Plumbing, Heating & Cooling will have much more accurate equipment to troubleshoot any issues.

Clear Air Vents

To ensure you get the most airflow in your home, be sure that sofas or other objects aren’t blocking your air vents. When air vents are blocked, the temperature can drop dramatically. This may sound like a silly tip, but make sure that your vents are actually open!

All of these issues can be repairs by the professionals at A+ Heating, Pluming & Cooling. Our qualified technicians are here to quickly identify and resolve any issues.
