3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

Service

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Pella, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you could possibly forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating, we have three tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Pella. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated 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 bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Pella to get your furnace looked at 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 coming winter months in Pella. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also affect 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 arrange your routine furnace service give the professionals at Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating a call at 641-628-3621.
