5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself ready for fall in Olathe, like get your sweaters out of storage and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we have three tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Olathe. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which may negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to drive up your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Olathe to get your furnace inspected by one of our expert technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Olathe. Routine 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 big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every portion of the season in comfort.
