5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall10/17/2016There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Hattiesburg, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you may forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning, we have three tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season. Check and Change Your Air Filter This is simple advice for every season in Hattiesburg. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and mean higher bills. 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 has the chance to increase your utility expenses. Schedule Annual Furnace Service Fall is the best time in Hattiesburg to get your furnace checked out by one of our professional technicians.
