5 Furnace Tips to Prepare for Fall

Wondering how you can prepare for fall, and make sure that your furnace is in proper shape before the chilly winter months? In this guide, we’ll take a look at the top 5 furnace maintenance tips to help you prepare for fall!

1. Change Your Air Filter

Furnace filters need to be changed about every 1-4 months – more regularly depending on the filter quality and if you have pets in your home. This ensures your furnace gets adequate air and ventilation.

2. Clean Your Air Vents And Ducts

This is the best way to preserve the air quality in your home this winter. Your ducts can collect dust and debris, and even micro-organisms like mold and mildew.

3. Check Your Vents

If you haven’t been using your heater for a while, some of your vents may be obstructed by drapes, furniture, and other items. Make sure they’ve cleared away.

4. Test Your Thermostat

Raise your thermostat to make sure that it’s working properly. In addition, switch it from “cool” to “heat”, if your thermostat is a dual-function model.

Over time, thermostats can become less accurate, so you may want to replace it if it seems like it is reading the temperature incorrectly, as this can cost you more money on your heating bills.

5. Get An Inspection And Tune-Up

Before you turn your furnace on in the fall, you need a furnace inspection from a professional, to ensure that your furnace is safe, efficient, and operating properly.
