Here is a Quick Tip related to home maintenance that I thought I would share with you about checking your furnace.

First, turn your furnace on now, to make sure it’s even working, before it gets cold. A strong, odd, short-lasting smell is natural when firing up the furnace in the autumn; simply open windows to dissipate it. It’s a good idea to have furnaces cleaned and tuned annually. Change the furnace filters regularly. A dirty filter impedes air flow, reduces efficiency.
