5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Crystal Lake, like get your sweaters out of storage and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few 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 diving into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Campbell's Tempracure, we have three tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Crystal Lake. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect your comfort and mean 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 increase your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Crystal Lake to get your furnace inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Crystal Lake. Annual 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 due to 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 set up your annual furnace service give the experts at Campbell's Tempracure a call at 815-788-6283 or make an appointment with us online.
