3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Oxford, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you might forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., we have three tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Oxford. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which may negatively influence your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. 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 has the chance to raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Oxford to get your furnace inspected 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 upcoming winter months in Oxford. 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 bit of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your annual furnace service give the pros at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. a call at 662-281-1231.
