3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are probably some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Williamsport, like hang up your sweaters and plan 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 routine furnace service from George Home Services, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Williamsport. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which may negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Williamsport to get your furnace inspected by one of our professional technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Williamsport. Annual 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 large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to 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 routine furnace service give the pros at George Home Services a call at 570-244-2510.
