5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

Service

There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Lake Forest, like swap out your closet and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you may 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 Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Lake Forest. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect 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 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 make sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Lake Forest. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may 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 a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every bit of the season in comfort.
