5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in the Main Line, like hang up your sweaters and plot 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 see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning, we have a few tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in the Main Line. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect 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 raise your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in the Main Line 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 coming winter months in the Main Line. 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 pretty high 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 set up your routine furnace service give the experts at O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 610-626-2540 or make an appointment with us online.
