3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Huffman, like hang up your sweaters 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 headed into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Air Houston Mechanical LLC, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Huffman. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and result in 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 has the chance to increase your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Huffman to get your furnace inspected by one of our professional technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Huffman. Regular 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 pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every bit 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 professionals at Air Houston Mechanical LLC a call at 832-224-3887.
