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 Bishop, like swap out your closet and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you may forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning, we have three tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Bishop. 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 try harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Bishop to get your furnace inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Bishop. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also impact 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 set up your annual furnace service give the experts at Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 760-784-9034 or make an appointment with us online.
