3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Franklin, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you might forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Winters Heating and Cooling, we have three 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 simple advice for every season in Franklin. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dusty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to increase your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Franklin to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Franklin. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also affect 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 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 Winters Heating and Cooling a call at 317-406-5783.
