5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall10/17/2016There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Utica, like swap out your closet and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you might forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Main Heating & Cooling, Inc., we have three tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepped for its busy season. Check and Change Your Air Filter This is basic advice for every season in Utica. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and lead to higher bills. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might raise your utility costs.
