5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Lawrence, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may 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 headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Scott Temperature, we have three tips that might help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Lawrence. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which can negatively impact your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Lawrence to get your furnace checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Lawrence. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to 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 regular furnace service give the experts at Scott Temperature a call at 785-843-2244 or make an appointment with us online.
