5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall10/17/2016There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in West Columbia, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc., we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season. Check and Replace Your Air Filter This is easy advice for every season in West Columbia. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers As you’ve moved 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 expenses.
