5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Great Falls, like hang up your sweaters and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Falls Mechanical Services LLC, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Great Falls. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively influence your comfort and lead to 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 increase your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Great Falls to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Great Falls. 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 big 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 schedule your regular furnace service give the pros at Falls Mechanical Services LLC a call at 406-761-7283 or make an appointment with us online.
