There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in West Columbia, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you may forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc., we have three tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.
- Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
This is easy advice for every season in West Columbia. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively influence your comfort and result in higher bills.
- Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might drive up your utility expenses.
- Schedule Annual Furnace Service
Fall is the ideal time in West Columbia to get your furnace inspected by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in West Columbia. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to 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 routine furnace service give the experts at Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. a call at 803-265-4208.
