5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Plainfield, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from PWA Heating & Cooling Inc, we have three tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Plainfield. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dusty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which may negatively influence your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Plainfield to get your furnace inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Plainfield. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a large 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 regular furnace service give the pros at PWA Heating & Cooling Inc a call at 815-768-6656 or make an appointment with us online.
