There are some things you might forget about while preparing 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 regular furnace service from Guidry's Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Service, we have three tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace ready for its busy season. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter This is basic advice for every season in Raceland. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively influence your comfort and mean higher bills. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers As you’ve moved 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 raise your utility bills. Schedule Annual Furnace Service Fall is the ideal time in Raceland to get your furnace inspected by one of our expert technicians.
