3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Pocatello, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you might forget about while preparing 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 annual furnace service from Vogts Heating & Air, we have a couple tips that might help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Pocatello. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can 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, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent might raise your utility bills.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Pocatello to get your furnace inspected by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do a thorough inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Pocatello. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and could also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to a 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 professionals at Vogts Heating & Air a call at 208-621-0129.
