5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall10/17/2016There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Erie, like hang up your sweaters and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you might forget about while preparing 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 routine furnace service from Patterson & Stirling Inc, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepped for its busy season. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter This is simple 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 dirty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which might negatively affect your comfort and result in higher bills. 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 increase your utility costs. Schedule Annual Furnace Service Fall is the perfect time in Erie to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional 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 impact the life of your system.
