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 the Rio Grande Valley, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you may forget about while doing your fall prep – 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 regular furnace service from Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C., we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in the Rio Grande Valley. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy 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 rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in the Rio Grande Valley to get your furnace looked at 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 the Rio Grande Valley. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and may also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to 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 set up your annual furnace service give the pros at Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. a call at 956-381-1162.
