3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Marshalltown, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you could possibly 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 B & G HVAC, we have three tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Marshalltown. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which may negatively impact 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 could raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Marshalltown to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Marshalltown. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also play a role in 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 portion 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 641-323-1210.
