Fall Furnace Tips

The fall season is here, which means it is that time of the year to schedule preventative maintenance to make sure your furnace is running smoothly throughout the colder months. By performing regular preventative maintenance and scheduling an annual inspection, you can extend the life of your furnace and limit expensive repairs. Check out our blog for the following fall furnace tips to keep your furnace in tip-top shape this season!

FALL FURNACE TIP #1 – CHANGE THE AIR FILTER

It is always a good idea to change your air filter regularly (around every 90 days). By keeping your air filter clean, you will have more efficient heating, save on utility bills as well as extend the life of your furnace. Bob’s Heating offers high-quality air filters as well as an Automatic Filter Replacement Program, so you can automatically receive a new filter every 90 days.

FALL FURNACE TIP #2 -CHECK YOUR THERMOSTAT

The thermostat controls both the heating and cooling systems of homes by detecting the temperature of the room and comparing it to the desired temperature setting. If you are setting your thermostat to a certain temperature, but still feel uncomfortable temperature-wise, then there is most likely a problem with the thermostat. Leave it to the experts and submit an online request here.

FALL FURNACE TIP #3 – SCHEDULE AN ANNUAL FURNACE CHECK-UP

One of the most important things that you can do for your furnace is to schedule an all-encompassing annual tune-up. Having your furnace inspected and cleaned by a professional will ensure that your system is running smoothly and safely this fall. Bob’s Heating offers annual maintenance plans and Trust Certified technicians who will diagnose any problems or system failures, perform preventative maintenance and ensure that your equipment is operating at its peak efficiency.

FALL FURNACE TIP #4 – TEST YOUR SMOKE ALARMS

One last fall furnace tip – remember to test your smoke alarms! Certain furnace problems such as insufficient combustion air around the furnace can lead to fire hazards. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimates that of all reported household fires, only about half (52%) of homes had a working smoke detector in the house. Just as you would with CO detectors, it is important to test all the smoke alarms in your home and replace old batteries with new ones.
