5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Genoa, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Assured Appliance and Heating & Air, we have a couple tips that might help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Genoa. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Genoa to get your furnace checked out by one of our professional technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Genoa. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to arrange your regular furnace service give the pros at Assured Appliance and Heating & Air a call at 847-293-0047 or make an appointment with us online.
