Along with your regular furnace service from Street Heating & Sheet Metal Inc, we have a few tips that can help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season. 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 dirty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which may negatively impact 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 could raise your utility expenses. Schedule Annual Furnace Service Fall is the ideal time in Rapid City to get your furnace looked at by one of our professional technicians.
