High snow totals and accompanying drifts could make it difficult for your furnace to operate and possibly even get you sick. Air intake vents coming out of the building from the furnace could be clogged if snow piles up too high or if swirling winds bring moisture into the pipes and freezes them shut. Jeff Blemke from Ultimate Air says you need to be proactive to make sure the vents stay open.
Blemke says homeowners do not need to worry as much about their air conditioners getting buried by the snow, but you can shovel around it if you are able.
