3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Magnolia, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you may 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 leaping into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from JTech Mechanical, we have a few tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Magnolia. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively affect your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could increase your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Magnolia to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Magnolia. Regular 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 bit 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 JTech Mechanical a call at 281-231-8768.
