5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Keokuk, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you may 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 routine furnace service from WM J Kraus & Son, we have a couple tips that might help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Keokuk. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A filthy 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 rearranged 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 increase your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Keokuk to get your furnace inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Keokuk. Regular 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 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 arrange your regular furnace service give the professionals at WM J Kraus & Son a call at 319-524-3714 or make an appointment with us online.
