5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Lexington, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from James Heating & A/C, Inc, we have three tips that might help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Lexington. 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 work harder to keep you warm which might 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 bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Lexington to get your furnace inspected 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 upcoming winter months in Lexington. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a big 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 set up your routine furnace service give the pros at James Heating & A/C, Inc a call at 336-853-6070 or make an appointment with us online.
