3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Jefferson City, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you might forget about while getting ready 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 Stieferman Heating Company Inc, we have three tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Jefferson City. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which may negatively impact your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged 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.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Jefferson City to get your furnace checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Jefferson City. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also affect 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 arrange your annual furnace service give the pros at Stieferman Heating Company Inc a call at 573-203-3908.
