5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Topeka, like hang up your sweaters and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you might forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc., we have a few tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Topeka. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dusty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively impact your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Topeka to get your furnace inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Topeka. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to a 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 regular furnace service give the professionals at Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc. a call at 785-357-6200 or make an appointment with us online.
