3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Erie, like get your sweaters out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some 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 diving into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Patterson & Stirling Inc, we have a couple 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 easy advice for every season in Erie. 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 might negatively impact your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, make sure 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 perfect time in Erie to get your furnace looked at by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Erie. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a large 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 arrange your annual furnace service give the experts at Patterson & Stirling Inc a call at 814-308-0416.
