5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Columbus, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Wolfe & Sons Inc, we have three tips that might 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 Columbus. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which can negatively impact your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. 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 expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Columbus to get your furnace checked out by one of our professional technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Columbus. 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 pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every portion 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 Wolfe & Sons Inc a call at 614-451-0846 or make an appointment with us online.
