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 Branchville, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly 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 regular furnace service from Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc., we have three tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Branchville. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively influence 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 drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Branchville to get your furnace inspected by one of our professional technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Branchville. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to arrange your routine furnace service give the professionals at Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc. a call at 862-345-6896.
