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 Augusta, like hang up your sweaters and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you may 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 annual furnace service from Sig Cox Heating and Air Conditioning, we have a couple tips that might help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Augusta. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dusty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which can 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 raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Augusta to get your furnace checked out 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 upcoming winter months in Augusta. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a large percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to a 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 arrange your routine furnace service give the experts at Sig Cox Heating and Air Conditioning a call at 706-722-5304 or make an appointment with us online.
