5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are probably some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Metro Atlanta, like hang up your sweaters and plan your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are some things you could possibly forget about while preparing for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re diving into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from ACS Inc, we have a few tips that might help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Replace Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Metro Atlanta. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which can negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills.
  2. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers
    As you’ve relocated furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to drive up your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the perfect time in Metro Atlanta to get your furnace checked out by one of our professional technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and ensure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Metro Atlanta. 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 big percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to 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 regular furnace service give the experts at ACS Inc a call at 770-939-7500 or make an appointment with us online.
