5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in McMurray, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Kowalski Heating & Cooling, we have a few tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in McMurray. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dusty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which may negatively influence your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might increase your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in McMurray to get your furnace looked at by one of our expert 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 McMurray. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to 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 set up your annual furnace service give the professionals at Kowalski Heating & Cooling a call at 724-745-7404 or make an appointment with us online.
