3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Mount Hope, 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 sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Appalachian Heating, we have a few tips that might help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Mount Hope. 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 work harder to keep you warm which can negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, be 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 ideal time in Mount Hope to get your furnace inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Mount Hope. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could 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 bit of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your annual furnace service give the professionals at Appalachian Heating a call at 304-707-0600.
