3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in McHenry, like hang up your sweaters and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you may forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Jett's Heating & Air Inc., we have three tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in McHenry. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dusty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run 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 has the chance to increase your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in McHenry to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in McHenry. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can 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 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 Jett's Heating & Air Inc. a call at 815-410-1128.
