3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Phoenix, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few 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 Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Phoenix. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to try 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 could raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Phoenix to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough 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 may also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to arrange your routine furnace service give the professionals at Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc a call at 602-832-7808.
