5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Macon, like get your sweaters out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might forget about while getting ready 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 Air Temperature Control, we have three tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Macon. 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 can negatively impact your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Macon to get your furnace looked at by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Macon. Regular 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 due to 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 set up your regular furnace service give the pros at Air Temperature Control a call at 478-784-1109 or make an appointment with us online.
