3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in West Jefferson, like get your sweaters out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few 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 leaping into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc., we have a few tips that might help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in West Jefferson. 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 work 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 rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in West Jefferson to get your furnace inspected by one of our professional technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in West Jefferson. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also affect 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 arrange your regular furnace service give the professionals at West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc. a call at 614-450-1575.
