3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Des Moines, like hang up your sweaters and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might forget about while getting ready 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 Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling, we have three tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Des Moines. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and mean 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 might drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Des Moines to get your furnace looked at by one of our expert technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Des Moines. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to 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 set up your routine furnace service give the pros at Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling a call at 515-207-6569.
