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 Elmhurst, like get your sweaters out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Alan Heating Air Conditioning, Inc., we have three tips that may help keep you comfortable 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 Elmhurst. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and mean 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 could increase your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Elmhurst to get your furnace checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Elmhurst. Regular 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 arrange your annual furnace service give the experts at Alan Heating Air Conditioning, Inc. a call at 630-833-1100 or make an appointment with us online.
