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 Richardson, like get your sweaters out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Hammack Service Company, we have a couple tips that might help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Richardson. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which may negatively impact your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might increase your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Richardson to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Richardson. Routine 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 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 arrange your regular furnace service give the professionals at Hammack Service Company a call at 972-669-9192 or make an appointment with us online.
