3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Lake Forest, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you might forget about while getting ready 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 annual furnace service from 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., we have three tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Lake Forest. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to work 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, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Lake Forest 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 upcoming winter months in Lake Forest. 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 big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a 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 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. a call at 949-204-0859.
