There are a few things you might forget about while getting ready for fall – like your furnace. We’re about to say see you later to air conditioner weather and we’re headed into furnace season. Along with your regular furnace service from Air Patrol Air Conditioning & Heating of Texas, we have a couple tips that can help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepared for its busy season. Check and Swap Out Your Air Filter This is simple advice for every season in Dallas. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dirty filter means your furnace has to try harder to keep you warm which can negatively affect your comfort and result in higher bills. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers As you’ve moved furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could drive up your utility costs.
