3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Monroe, 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 goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Lanz Furnace and Fireplace, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Monroe. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence 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 could raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Monroe 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 Monroe. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a big 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 experts at Lanz Furnace and Fireplace a call at 608-291-3606.
