5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Springfield, like hang up your sweaters and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you could possibly forget about while doing your fall prep – 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 regular furnace service from Bormida Mechanical Services Inc, we have a couple 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 Springfield. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated 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 perfect time in Springfield to get your furnace checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Springfield. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could 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 aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your routine furnace service give the pros at Bormida Mechanical Services Inc a call at 217-210-2662 or make an appointment with us online.
