5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Colorado Springs, like get your sweaters out of storage and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you might forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Mitchell Heating, we have three tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Colorado Springs. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy 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 rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, ensure 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 ideal time in Colorado Springs to get your furnace inspected 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 coming winter months in Colorado Springs. Annual 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 large 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 arrange your annual furnace service give the professionals at Mitchell Heating a call at 719-596-6677 or make an appointment with us online.
