5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Midlothian, like hang up your sweaters and plot 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 diving into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp., we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Midlothian. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved 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 expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Midlothian to get your furnace inspected by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the upcoming winter months in Midlothian. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also affect 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 portion 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 routine furnace service give the pros at Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. a call at 804-379-1155 or make an appointment with us online.
