With all this fabulous snow coming down, keep your furnace and dryer vents clear of, well, snow! ❄️

If you have a new high-efficiency furnace, it vents out the side of the house—creating a big problem during heavy snows and extended periods of extreme cold. The blowing snow may drift up against your house and block the vents, effectively blocking the outflow of air. ❄️

If it’s blocked, the furnace may potentially shut down and won’t start again until you manually get it going. So pull out your snow shovels and clear the snow off of the vents. If you have a gas furnace, simply relight the pilot. Remember, it will only light after you have the vents clear of snow. ❄️
