3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Ballwin and St. Charles, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Air Alliance Team, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Ballwin and St. Charles. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Ballwin and St. Charles to get your furnace looked at by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Ballwin and St. Charles. 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 large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a 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 arrange your annual furnace service give the pros at Air Alliance Team a call at 636-206-4250.
