5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Tuscaloosa, like hang up your sweaters and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you could possibly forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from KDM Service Corporation, we have a couple tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is simple advice for every season in Tuscaloosa. 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 try harder to keep you warm which can negatively influence 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 has the chance to drive up your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Tuscaloosa to get your furnace checked out by one of our expert technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Tuscaloosa. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high 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 KDM Service Corporation a call at 205-758-2703 or make an appointment with us online.
