3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Wheeling, like hang up your sweaters and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you could possibly forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Local HVAC Repair & Service , we have a couple tips that might help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Wheeling. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Wheeling to get your furnace looked at by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Wheeling. Routine 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 aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your regular furnace service give the pros at Local HVAC Repair & Service a call at 224-300-4806.
