3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Moline, like swap out your closet 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 see you later 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 couple tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Moline. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively influence your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved 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 increase your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Moline to get your furnace inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Moline. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every bit of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your annual furnace service give the professionals at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 309-323-9584.
