5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Muskogee, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you may 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 annual furnace service from Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc., we have a couple tips that might help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Muskogee. 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 try harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Muskogee to get your furnace checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Muskogee. 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 large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of 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 regular furnace service give the experts at Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. a call at 918-682-8238 or make an appointment with us online.
