5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in East Peoria, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC, we have a couple tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in East Peoria. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved 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 increase your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in East Peoria to get your furnace checked out by one of our professional technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in East Peoria. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your routine furnace service give the pros at Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC a call at 309-437-2703 or make an appointment with us online.
