3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Genoa, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you may forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Assured Appliance and Heating & Air, we have three tips that may help keep you comfortable 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 change out your filter from dusty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively impact your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, be sure 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 ideal time in Genoa to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained 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 may also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a large 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 set up your regular furnace service give the experts at Assured Appliance and Heating & Air a call at 847-306-8990.
