5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Madera, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may 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 routine furnace service from Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc., we have three tips that may help keep you comfortable 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 Madera. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which might 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 could drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Madera to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Madera. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to 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 set up your annual furnace service give the pros at Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc. a call at 559-675-1681 or make an appointment with us online.
