There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Erie, like get your sweaters out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might forget about while getting ready for fall – 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 Patterson & Stirling Inc, we have three tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.
- Check and Change Your Air Filter
This is easy advice for every season in Erie. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
- 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.
- Schedule Annual Furnace Service
Fall is the perfect time in Erie to get your furnace checked out by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Erie. Regular 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 attributed to a lack of maintenance.
We want you to enjoy every bit of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your routine furnace service give the experts at Patterson & Stirling Inc a call at 814-308-0416.
