5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall10/17/2016There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Columbia, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through 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 diving into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Watts Electric & A/C Inc, we have three tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter This is easy advice for every season in Columbia. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which can negatively influence your comfort and result in higher bills. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to raise your utility costs. Schedule Annual Furnace Service Fall is the best time in Columbia to get your furnace looked at by one of our highly-trained technicians.
