There are probably some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Houston, like swap out your closet and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you may forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Marcos AC & Heating, we have a few tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.
- Check and Change Your Air Filter
This is simple advice for every season in Houston. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
- 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 might drive up your utility bills.
- Schedule Annual Furnace Service
Fall is the best time in Houston to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained 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 Houston. 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 big 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 annual furnace service give the experts at Marcos AC & Heating a call at 713-469-3357.
