There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Anchorage, like swap out your closet and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services, we have three tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.
- Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
This is easy advice for every season in Anchorage. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and lead to higher bills.
- Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility bills.
- Schedule Annual Furnace Service
Fall is the perfect time in Anchorage to get your furnace checked out by one of our professional technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Anchorage. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a lack of maintenance.
We want you to enjoy every portion of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your annual furnace service give the pros at Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services a call at 907-202-9798.
