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 Plover, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Point Heating & Cooling, we have a few tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Plover. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might increase your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Plover to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Plover. Regular 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 attributed to a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every bit 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 experts at Point Heating & Cooling a call at 715-345-1979 or make an appointment with us online.
