5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Carpentersville, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc, we have three tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Carpentersville. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect your comfort and mean 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 raise your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Carpentersville to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Carpentersville. Routine 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 large 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 arrange your annual furnace service give the experts at Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc a call at 224-699-9229 or make an appointment with us online.
