3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Rocky Mount, like swap out your closet and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you may 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 regular furnace service from Davis Heating & Air Conditioning, we have a couple tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Rocky Mount. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Rocky Mount to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Rocky Mount. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a large 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. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your routine furnace service give the pros at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 540-369-3790.
