3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Keokuk, like get your sweaters out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you might forget about while preparing 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 WM J Kraus & Son, we have a few tips that might help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Keokuk. 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 run harder to keep you warm which might negatively affect your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. 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 increase your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Keokuk to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Keokuk. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to 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 routine furnace service give the pros at WM J Kraus & Son a call at 319-229-2318.
