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 Napoleon and Northwest Ohio, like swap out your closet and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you may forget about while preparing 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 annual furnace service from Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc., we have a few tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which may 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, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio. 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 pretty high 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 schedule your regular furnace service give the pros at Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. a call at 419-592-4756 or make an appointment with us online.
