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 Chicago, like hang up your sweaters and think through 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 headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning, we have a few tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Chicago. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dusty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively impact your comfort and result in higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Chicago to get your furnace checked out 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 approaching winter months in Chicago. Annual 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 large 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 arrange your annual furnace service give the experts at iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning a call at 773-704-0640 or make an appointment with us online.
