3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Grand Prairie, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you could possibly forget about while doing your fall prep – 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 regular furnace service from Bon Air Service Company, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Grand Prairie. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Grand Prairie to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Grand Prairie. 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 due to 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 schedule your routine furnace service give the pros at Bon Air Service Company a call at 972-332-1028.
