5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall10/17/2016There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in McHenry, like hang up your sweaters and plan 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 sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re diving 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. 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 switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and mean 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 has the chance to drive up your utility expenses. Schedule Annual Furnace Service Fall is the perfect time in McHenry to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians.
