3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Newark, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while getting ready 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 Luikart Heating & Cooling, we have a few tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Newark. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which can negatively influence 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 could raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Newark to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Newark. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your regular furnace service give the pros at Luikart Heating & Cooling a call at 740-200-5591.
