3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Sacramento, like swap out your closet 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 goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from American HVAC Inc, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Sacramento. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which may negatively impact your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Sacramento to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Sacramento. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high 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 schedule your regular furnace service give the experts at American HVAC Inc a call at 916-243-6714.
