There are some things you may forget about while doing your fall prep – like your furnace. We’re about to say sayonara to air conditioner weather and we’re leaping into furnace season. Along with your routine furnace service from Cytech Heating & Cooling, we have a few tips that may help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season. Check and Change Your Air Filter This is basic advice for every season in the Upper Rio Grande Valley. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A filthy filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and result in higher bills. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility bills.
