3 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Rapid City, like swap out your closet and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you may forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say goodbye to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Street Heating and Cooling, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Rapid City. 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 work harder to keep you warm which can 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 could raise your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the ideal time in Rapid City to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and be sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Rapid City. Regular furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a 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 regular furnace service give the experts at Street Heating and Cooling a call at 605-206-3915.
