There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Rapid City, like swap out your closet and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you might 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 Street Heating and Cooling, we have three tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.
- Check and Change Your Air Filter
This is simple advice for every season in Rapid City. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which may negatively affect your comfort and result in higher bills.
- Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
As you’ve rearranged 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.
- Schedule Annual Furnace Service
Fall is the best time in Rapid City to get your furnace checked out by one of our expert 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. Routine 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 pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a lack of maintenance.
We want you to enjoy every aspect of the season in comfort. If you have any questions for us about getting your home ready for fall or need to schedule your routine furnace service give the experts at Street Heating and Cooling a call at 605-206-3915.
