5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are likely some things you do to get yourself prepared for fall in Baltimore, like hang up your sweaters and think through your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple things you could possibly forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your annual furnace service from Quality Refrigeration, we have a few tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace ready for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is easy advice for every season in Baltimore. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which might negatively affect your comfort and lead to higher bills.
  2. 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 could drive up your utility expenses.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Baltimore to get your furnace inspected by one of our professional technicians. We will do a comprehensive inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the approaching winter months in Baltimore. Annual furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also impact the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are due to 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 schedule your regular furnace service give the professionals at Quality Refrigeration a call at 410-355-6010 or make an appointment with us online.
