5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Augusta, like get your sweaters out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple 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 McCune Heating & Cooling, we have three 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 easy advice for every season in Augusta. 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 run harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Augusta to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Augusta. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also impact 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 aspect 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 regular furnace service give the pros at McCune Heating & Cooling a call at 316-733-9123 or make an appointment with us online.
