5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Williamsport, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few 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 headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Lycoming Heating Company, we have three tips that might help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Williamsport. 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 run harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect 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 has the chance to drive up your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Williamsport to get your furnace looked at 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 Williamsport. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high 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 regular furnace service give the professionals at Lycoming Heating Company a call at 570-326-4450 or make an appointment with us online.
