There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Des Moines, like swap out your closet and plot 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 routine furnace service from Heartland Heating & Cooling, we have a few tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace ready for its busy season.
- Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
This is basic advice for every season in Des Moines. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
- 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 could raise your utility expenses.
- Schedule Annual Furnace Service
Fall is the ideal time in Des Moines to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Des Moines. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may 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 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 arrange your regular furnace service give the pros at Heartland Heating & Cooling a call at 515-344-3579.
