5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Selbyville, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you could possibly forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Red Dog Cooling, Heating, & Plumbing, we have three tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Selbyville. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which may negatively impact your comfort and mean 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 drive up your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Selbyville to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Selbyville. Routine 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 due to lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every aspect of the season in comfort.
