3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Alice, like swap out your closet and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Rescue Heating & Air , we have a few tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Alice. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which may negatively impact your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Alice to get your furnace checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Alice. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to 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 schedule your regular furnace service give the experts at Rescue Heating & Air a call at 361-265-4371.
