Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter This is basic advice for every season in Cedar Rapids. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and lead to higher bills.

A blocked vent could raise your utility expenses. Schedule Annual Furnace Service Fall is the perfect time in Cedar Rapids to get your furnace inspected by one of our expert technicians.
