5 Ways to Make Sure Your Furnace is Ready for Fall

There are undoubtedly some things you do to get yourself prepped for fall in Lodi, like hang up your sweaters and plot your Instagram-worthy pumpkin carving. There are a couple 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 diving into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning, we have three tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season.

  1. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter
    This is basic advice for every season in Lodi. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go switch 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 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 might drive up your utility costs.
  3. Schedule Annual Furnace Service
    Fall is the best time in Lodi to get your furnace looked at by one of our expert technicians. We will do an in-depth inspection of your unit and make sure it will be in good working order for the coming winter months in Lodi. Routine furnace service can help you get the most out of your furnace’s performance, and can also affect the life of your system. Not to mention that a pretty high percentage of the emergency calls in the winter are a result of a lack of maintenance.

We want you to enjoy every portion of the season in comfort.
