5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Asheville, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while preparing 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 regular furnace service from 1st Choice Service Group Inc, we have three tips that might help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Asheville. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dusty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and result in 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 could raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Asheville to get your furnace checked out by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Asheville. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could 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 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 pros at 1st Choice Service Group Inc a call at 828-551-2913 or make an appointment with us online.
