There are probably 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 annual 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.
- Check and Replace Your Air Filter
This is easy advice for every season in Des Moines. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
- Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might drive up your utility costs.
- Schedule Annual Furnace Service
Fall is the best time in Des Moines to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Des Moines. Annual 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 large 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 schedule your routine furnace service give the pros at Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling a call at 515-207-6569.
