Most of us just turn the heat on when it gets cold.
You should always void doing this before at least checking things over. You don’t need to be a professional to do this. Of course, if you see something that you don’t really understand call a pro.
However, most of us could at least change the filters, clean, and look around for anything out of the ordinary such as leaks or something that became disconnected. For a furnace changing the air filters takes about two minutes and is very simple. In my video, I show the filters in the return in the ceilings. However, yours could be in the return at the furnace.
Removing one or two covers is always a good idea to look for mouse poop, yes anyone could have field mice.
Once the furnace starts up look for a nice solid bluish flame. If you don’t I would have a pro take a look at it.

Hello! I watched your video for the boiler. I have a peerless and thinking about replacing it with a smaller boiler set like yours in that video. It’s for a four units building. What might you recommend and what’s your brand in that video?
Thank you so much for all your sharing, Mr. Dominic
The size of your units will tell you how sections/size of a boiler you’ll need. I would think 4-5 section boiler. This video is a furnace, not a boiler. Furnace is forced hot air. A boiler is baseboard heat/hot water. I have no idea what brand this was in the video.
