3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Shelby, like get your sweaters out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly 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 Hopper Heating and Air, we have a couple tips that might help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Shelby. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Shelby to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Shelby. 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 big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to 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 schedule your annual furnace service give the experts at Hopper Heating and Air a call at 704-233-7363.
