3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

October 17, 2016

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Wausau, 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 see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Gilray Heating and Cooling, we have a few tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Wausau. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from dusty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Wausau to get your furnace inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Wausau. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could 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 a result of a 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 arrange your routine furnace service give the pros at Gilray Heating and Cooling a call at 715-301-0727.
