October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Hudsonville, like hang up your sweaters and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple 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 leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services, we have a few tips that might help keep you comfy 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 switch out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which may negatively influence your comfort and result in 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 has the chance to drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Hudsonville to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Hudsonville. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of 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 arrange your regular furnace service give the experts at West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services a call at (616) 669-3961.
