When it comes to using our heaters in Southern Vermont, we are definitely not in the clear just yet. While other areas in the country are looking at cold temperatures in the rearview mirror, we’ve still got plenty of chilly days and nights to deal with.

filterWhen you live in Vermont, you have to deal with the winter season.  It’s coming around each and every year,  and when it comes around, it can really stick around. But you don’t need us to tell you that our winters can be pretty intense. What you might need reminding of, though, is one of the most effective ways in which you can set your forced air heater up for success. That is by changing the air filter as needed.
