3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Shelby, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot 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 annual furnace service from Hopper Heating and Air, we have a couple tips that might 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 Shelby. 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 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, make 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 perfect time in Shelby to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Shelby. Regular 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 a result of a 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 regular furnace service give the experts at Hopper Heating and Air a call at 704-233-7363.
