There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Cedar Rapids, like get your sweaters out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – 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 Ilten's Incorporated, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.
- Check and Change Your Air Filter
This is easy advice for every season in Cedar Rapids. 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 may negatively impact your comfort and result in higher bills.
- Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could increase your utility expenses.
- Schedule Annual Furnace Service
Fall is the perfect time in Cedar Rapids to get your furnace checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Cedar Rapids. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a big 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 Ilten's Incorporated a call at 319-208-3295.
