5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Rocky Mount, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through 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 see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Davis Heating & Air Conditioning, we have a few tips that might help keep you comfy 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 Rocky Mount. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Rocky Mount to get your furnace checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Rocky Mount. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a large 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 annual furnace service give the experts at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 540-483-5605 or make an appointment with us online.
