3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Derby, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few 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 annual furnace service from Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning, we have a few tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Derby. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and mean 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 could raise your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Derby to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Derby. 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 attributed to 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 arrange your annual furnace service give the pros at Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning a call at 203-772-8319.
