3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Perry, like hang up your sweaters and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you might forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Gillman Heating and Air, we have a few tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Perry. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can 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 has the chance to raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Perry to get your furnace inspected by one of our professional 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 Perry. Routine 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 due to 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 routine furnace service give the professionals at Gillman Heating and Air a call at 478-202-3076.
