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 Wisconsin Rapids, like swap out your closet and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Wisconsin Rapids. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which can negatively impact your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might raise your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Wisconsin Rapids to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional 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 Wisconsin Rapids. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of 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 arrange your annual furnace service give the professionals at Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc a call at 715-421-5555 or make an appointment with us online.
