What’s on your fall to do checklist?
 Tweet  Share

Kids off to school…check; clean off patio…check; start working on winterizing projects around the house…check.  What am I forgetting? 

Don't forget about getting your furnace ready for winter.  Now is the time to schedule your fall furnace maintenance before the cool weather hits and leaves you frigid!

Your heating and cooling system, like your car, needs a tune-up to prevent breakdowns and unnecessary repairs. In fact, according to Energy Star, a division of the EPA, “Dirt and neglect are the #1 causes of heating and cooling system failure.” A routine check-up from a qualified technician will ensure that your system is performing at its most efficient and providing optimum home comfort. Studies show that properly maintaining your heating and cooling systems can reduce energy bills by up to 35%!

Don’t wait until your furnace won’t ignite before you call for service. At this point you’ll typically pay more (because it’s an emergency call) and have to wait (because it’s usually around the coldest day of the year). Having your heating & cooling system put on a yearly maintenance schedule will pay for itself in lower repair costs, less aggravation, and more efficient operation.
