3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Lawrence, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you could possibly forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Scott Temperature, we have three tips that might help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace 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 dusty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could increase your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Lawrence to get your furnace looked at by one of our expert technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Lawrence. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also impact 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 aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your annual furnace service give the experts at Scott Temperature a call at 785-269-0465.
