3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Hattiesburg, like hang up your sweaters and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Hattiesburg. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Hattiesburg to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Hattiesburg. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a big 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 annual furnace service give the professionals at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 601-292-9763.
