5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Bountiful, like get your sweaters out of storage 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 goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Craig's Appliance Heating & Cooling, we have a couple tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Bountiful. 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 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 relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Bountiful to get your furnace inspected by one of our professional technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Bountiful. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to arrange your annual furnace service give the experts at Craig's Appliance Heating & Cooling a call at 801-295-3357 or make an appointment with us online.
