There are some things you might forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Total Comfort, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season. Check and Change Your Air Filter This is basic advice for every season in Franklin Lakes. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and mean higher bills. 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 might raise your utility costs. Schedule Annual Furnace Service Fall is the perfect time in Franklin Lakes to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians.
