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 Marshalltown, like hang up your sweaters and plot 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 diving into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from B & G HVAC, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Marshalltown. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, make 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 perfect time in Marshalltown to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Marshalltown. Regular 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 attributed to a 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 schedule your regular furnace service give the experts at B & G HVAC a call at 641-752-3429 or make an appointment with us online.
