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 Phoenix, like hang up your sweaters and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some 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 headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc, we have a couple tips that might help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Phoenix. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which might 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 has the chance to drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Phoenix to get your furnace looked at 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 coming winter months in Phoenix. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high 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.
