Tacoma Heating Tip: How to Get Ready for Fall

Check out some of our suggestions that you can do to get your heater ready for the Fall.

  • Get it maintained – One of the best things that you can do for the performance and efficiency of your heating system is to get it tuned up by a professional. From all the use that it got the previous winter and then all the sitting around that it did during the summer, there are a lot of different things that could have started to go wrong with it. During the maintenance visit, your technician will thoroughly inspect and clean the entire system to make sure that there isn’t any debris, insects or rodents inside of it which could cause problems. They’ll alert you to any repairs that need to be made which could help you fix them before they turn into larger, more costly repairs.
  • Change the air filter – If you have a forced air heater like a furnace or a heat pump then it likely shares an air filter with your air conditioning system. Your AC has likely been running a lot over the summer which means that the air filter could be clogged with all kinds of debris like dust, dirt and pollen. Changing the air filter before the fall will help ensure that your heater can pull in plenty of air without any restrictions. This will help increase its efficiency and also make sure that you get plenty of warm air.
