3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are probably some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Kearney, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might forget about while getting ready 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 annual furnace service from Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning, we have three tips that can help keep you cozy 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 Kearney. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dusty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated 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 bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Kearney to get your furnace inspected 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 upcoming winter months in Kearney. 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 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 routine furnace service give the pros at Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 308-624-3485.
