October 17, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in South Beloit and Belvidere, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you could possibly forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, we have a couple tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in South Beloit and Belvidere. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dusty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which can negatively impact your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to increase your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in South Beloit and Belvidere to get your furnace inspected by one of our professional technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in South Beloit and Belvidere. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a lack of maintenance.
