5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Colorado Springs, like hang up your sweaters and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a few things you could possibly 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 annual furnace service from Triton HVAC & Refrigeration, we have a few tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season.

  1. Check and Change Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Colorado Springs. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from dusty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Colorado Springs to get your furnace checked out by one of our highly-trained technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Colorado Springs. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also play a role in the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are attributed to 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 arrange your routine furnace service give the professionals at Triton HVAC & Refrigeration a call at 719-332-3458 or make an appointment with us online.
