3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Gresham, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you might forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Honke Heating & AC, we have a couple tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Gresham. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. 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 might increase your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Gresham to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Gresham. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every portion of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your routine furnace service give the pros at Honke Heating & AC a call at 503-663-8033.
