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 Drexel Hill, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few 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 O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning, we have a few tips that might help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Drexel Hill. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can 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 has the chance to increase your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Drexel Hill to get your furnace looked at by one of our expert technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Drexel Hill. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could 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 arrange your routine furnace service give the experts at O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 610-257-7035.
