3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Bloomfield, like get your sweaters out of storage 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 sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Stanford Heating & Cooling, we have three tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Bloomfield. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively impact your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Bloomfield 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 approaching winter months in Bloomfield. Annual 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 set up your annual furnace service give the experts at Stanford Heating & Cooling a call at 812-825-8695.
