5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Homer Glen, 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 see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Pinnacle HVAC LLC, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Homer Glen. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Homer Glen to get your furnace inspected by one of our professional technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Homer Glen. 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 large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of 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 set up your annual furnace service give the pros at Pinnacle HVAC LLC a call at 708-301-0170 or make an appointment with us online.
