5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Portland Metro, like hang up your sweaters and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you may forget about while doing your fall prep – 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 Central Air Inc, we have a few tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Portland Metro. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which might negatively affect your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to increase your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Portland Metro to get your furnace looked at by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Portland Metro. Regular 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 large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every bit 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 pros at Central Air Inc a call at 503-656-1908 or make an appointment with us online.
