3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in San Jose, 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 preparing 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 routine furnace service from American HVAC Inc, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in San Jose. 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 run harder to keep you warm which can negatively impact your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could increase your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in San Jose to get your furnace inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in San Jose. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can 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 portion of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to arrange your regular furnace service give the pros at American HVAC Inc a call at 408-215-1018.
