5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Middletown, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Schagrin Gas Company, we have a few tips that might help keep you comfortable and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Middletown. 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 try harder to keep you warm which might negatively affect 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 drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Middletown to get your furnace looked at by one of our expert technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Middletown. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also play a role in 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 aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your regular furnace service give the pros at Schagrin Gas Company a call at 302-658-2000 or make an appointment with us online.
