5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Aurora, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you may forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Service Plus Mechanical, we have three tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Aurora. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run 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 moved furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Aurora to get your furnace looked at by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Aurora. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could 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 portion 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 routine furnace service give the professionals at Service Plus Mechanical a call at 630-809-6319 or make an appointment with us online.
