3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Marshalltown, like hang up your sweaters and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Kapaun & Brown Inc., we have a couple tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Marshalltown. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which might 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, make sure 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 ideal time in Marshalltown to get your furnace checked out 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 Marshalltown. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every portion of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to set up your regular furnace service give the professionals at Kapaun & Brown Inc. a call at 641-812-2028.
