3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Odessa, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while preparing 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 routine furnace service from Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning, we have a couple tips that might help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Odessa. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which may negatively influence 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 has the chance to drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Odessa to get your furnace checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Odessa. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a large 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 routine furnace service give the experts at Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 432-237-0168.
