3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Elk River, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you may forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Home Comfort Heating & Air, we have three 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 simple advice for every season in Elk River. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch 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 lead to 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 might raise your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Elk River to get your furnace looked at by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Elk River. 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 due to 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 regular furnace service give the professionals at Home Comfort Heating & Air a call at 763-276-0617.
