There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in the Bay Area, like hang up your sweaters and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may 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 regular furnace service from Contra Costa Heating & AC, we have a few tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.
- Check and Replace Your Air Filter
This is basic advice for every season in the Bay Area. 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 may negatively affect your comfort and mean higher bills.
- 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 increase your utility costs.
- Schedule Annual Furnace Service
Fall is the perfect time in the Bay Area to get your furnace looked at 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 approaching winter months in the Bay Area. Routine 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 big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of 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 pros at Contra Costa Heating & AC a call at 510-343-9841.
