5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Moline, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you might 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 regular furnace service from J.L. Brady Company LLC, we have a few tips that might help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Moline. 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 run harder to keep you warm which may negatively impact your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might drive up your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Moline to get your furnace inspected 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 Moline. Annual 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 large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to a 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 arrange your annual furnace service give the professionals at J.L. Brady Company LLC a call at 309-517-7511 or make an appointment with us online.
