With the official start of winter just a few days ago, Glover Services wants Utahns to be prepared to keep their loved ones warm with a safe, efficiently running furnace.

Matt Glover understands the importance of furnace maintenance. His company, Glover Services, spends countless hours every winter answering desperate calls from freezing Utahns whose furnaces have gone on the fritz.

"It's relatively easy and inexpensive to maintain your furnace if you know what to look for," says Matt. "I have five kids of my own and the last thing I'd want is for my family to suffer through a cold Utah night." Matt recommends these tips to avoid furnace failure:

Pay attention to costs. If your heating bills have increased significantly, your furnace may be too old to run efficiently. Change out your furnace filter once a month. Keeping your furnace filter clean on a regular basis will help it perform optimally. If your furnace is noisier than usual, parts may be getting worn down and are at risk of breaking; likewise, if you hear frequent on/off cycling, the unit may be struggling. "Obviously if you smell gas, that's a clear warning sign that something could be malfunctioning" notes Glover. "It's rare that a furnace will simply stop working without any warning."
