3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in McMurray, like swap out your closet and plan 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 regular furnace service from Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in McMurray. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dusty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact 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 could increase your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in McMurray to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in McMurray. Regular 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 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 pros at Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing a call at 724-370-0141.
