5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Auburn, like swap out your closet and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you could possibly forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Forster Heating, we have a few tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Auburn. 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 affect your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. 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 has the chance to drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Auburn to get your furnace checked out 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 Auburn. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every portion of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your regular furnace service give the experts at Forster Heating a call at 530-206-0330 or make an appointment with us online.
