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 Moline, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you might forget about while preparing 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 annual furnace service from Freed Heating & Air Conditioning, we have a few tips that can 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 Moline. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dusty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to raise your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Moline 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 Moline. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also impact 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 aspect 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 annual furnace service give the professionals at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 309-762-3641 or make an appointment with us online.
