5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Florissant, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from B & B Heating & Cooling, we have a few tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Florissant. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect your comfort and lead to 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 might raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Florissant to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Florissant. 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 large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every aspect 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 professionals at B & B Heating & Cooling a call at 314-838-9800 or make an appointment with us online.
