5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall10/17/2016There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in the Midlands, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you might forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Alltemp Comfort Services LLC, we have three tips that might help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepped for its busy season. Check and Change Your Air Filter This is basic advice for every season in the Midlands. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which might negatively affect your comfort and mean higher bills. 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 might raise your utility costs. Schedule Annual Furnace Service Fall is the best time in the Midlands to get your furnace checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in the Midlands. 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 big 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.
