3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Rapid City, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you might forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Precision Mechanical, we have a few tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Rapid City. 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 work harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Rapid City to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Rapid City. 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 pretty high 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 arrange your annual furnace service give the experts at Precision Mechanical a call at 605-206-2564.
