Furnace Maintenance in Cold Temperatures Can Prevent Problems

Posted: Updated:
CLARKSBURG -

With the continuous cold temperatures our furnaces and heaters are working overtime. Officials at Grogg's Heating and Air Conditioning in Clarksburg said that can cause some problems.

Branch manager Keith Blair said they have been very busy lately with furnaces breaking down and people needing heat to stay warm.

"The last cold spell we had technicians working around the clock. They were working through the night on barely any sleep because when it reaches that cold you just can't wait until morning. When you need heat you need it and there's the fear of pipes freezing as well," said Blair.

Blair said the one thing you can do to make sure your furnace runs properly in cold temperatures is to change the filter regularly.
