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 Ellsworth, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple 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 annual furnace service from Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Ellsworth. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which might negatively affect your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged 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 expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Ellsworth 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 coming winter months in Ellsworth. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can 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 set up your annual furnace service give the pros at Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC a call at 715-318-6728.
