3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Alliance, like swap out your closet and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces, we have a couple tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Alliance. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch 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 rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Alliance to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Alliance. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every portion 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 routine furnace service give the pros at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces a call at 308-321-4703.
