3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in York, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some 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 diving into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in York. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which can negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might drive up your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in York to get your furnace checked out 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 approaching winter months in York. Annual 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 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 pros at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 717-383-4479.
