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 Montoursville, like swap out your closet and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Airmen HVAC Service, we have a few tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Montoursville. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and lead to 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 might raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Montoursville to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Montoursville. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to 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 experts at Airmen HVAC Service a call at 570-322-3131.
