3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

Service

There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Lexington, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Kelley Mechanical, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Lexington. 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 run harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Lexington to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained 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 Lexington. Regular 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 large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a 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 schedule your annual furnace service give the professionals at Kelley Mechanical a call at 859-209-3003.
