Fall is Perfect Time to Get Your Furnace Ready

It’s considered America’s favorite season, and there’s plenty to look forward to this fall in Buffalo Grove, Illinois: Chicago Bears football, cooler weather accompanied by changing leaves, family feasts and preparing your furnace for the winter. OK, so maybe that last item isn’t something you especially look forward to, but imagine how your furnace feels when it’s working hard to keep you warm throughout wintertime.

With that said, here are three ways you can help your furnace feel healthier and prepared.

Change the HVAC Filter

With the summer coming to an end, now’s a good time to change the HVAC filter. Remember that you should be checking it monthly and changing it at least every three months. Not only will a dirty filter lead to dust and debris entering your home, but it’ll also cause your heating system to operate less efficiently and could eventually break down.

Set Your Thermostat Settings

Your heating system can cost you a lot of money in energy during a long and cold winter. To conserve energy while maintaining comfort, set your thermostat to the “auto” setting. Under this setting, your heating system will turn off once your home’s heated to the set temperature. Also remember that your set temperature – or set point – should be 70 degrees or less.

Invest in Furnace Service

Of course, the best way to ensure your heating system is ready for the winter ahead is to invest in a professional tuneup. You can do so by purchasing a preventive maintenance plan, which protects your heating and cooling system throughout the entire year, or you can schedule a furnace service now before the calls really start coming in. Considering how complex your heating system is and the hazards it can present, scheduling a tuneup is a wise idea.
