Along with your routine furnace service from Ben Maines Air Conditioning, Inc., we have a few tips that might help keep you comfy and get your furnace ready for its busy season. Check and Replace Your Air Filter This is simple advice for every season in Longview. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from filthy to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to work harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and result in higher bills. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, be sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent could raise your utility expenses. Schedule Annual Furnace Service Fall is the ideal time in Longview to get your furnace inspected by one of our professional technicians.
