3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Lafayette, like swap out your closet and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – 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 routine furnace service from AC Sales, we have a few tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Lafayette. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Lafayette to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Lafayette. 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 pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a 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 arrange your annual furnace service give the experts at AC Sales a call at (337) 234-2345.
