5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Hudsonville, like swap out your closet and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Hudsonville. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which may negatively impact your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Hudsonville to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Hudsonville. 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 attributed to a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every portion of the season in comfort.
