3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in the Bay Area, 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 diving into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Contra Costa Heating & AC, we have a few tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. 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 impact your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to increase your utility costs.
  3. 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 can 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 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 routine furnace service give the experts at Contra Costa Heating & AC a call at 510-343-9841.
