3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Savage, like hang up your sweaters and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you may forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning, we have a few tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Savage. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which may negatively influence your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Savage 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 coming winter months in Savage. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also play a role in 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 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 annual furnace service give the professionals at Gopher Heating and Air Conditioning a call at 952-373-0377.
