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 Racine, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might 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 routine furnace service from Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc, we have a couple tips that might help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Racine. 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 result in 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 has the chance to raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Racine 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 upcoming winter months in Racine. Regular 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 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 arrange your regular furnace service give the professionals at Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc a call at 262-358-9468.
