5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in South Beloit and Belvidere, like swap out your closet and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc., we have a couple tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in South Beloit and Belvidere. 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 work harder to keep you warm which may 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 expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in South Beloit and Belvidere to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in South Beloit and Belvidere. 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 large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every aspect 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 experts at Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. a call at 877-389-2465 or make an appointment with us online.
