5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in East Hanover, 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 goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Effective Service Group, LLC., we have three tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in East Hanover. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and result in 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 might raise your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in East Hanover to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in East Hanover. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high 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 set up your regular furnace service give the professionals at Effective Service Group, LLC. a call at 973-884-0065 or make an appointment with us online.
