5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Colfax, like get your sweaters out of storage 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 sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Ackerman Heating & Air Conditioning, we have a couple tips that might help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Colfax. 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 try harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect 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 might increase your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Colfax to get your furnace checked out by one of our professional technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Colfax. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also impact 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 portion of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your routine furnace service give the experts at Ackerman Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 509-397-3622 or make an appointment with us online.
