Along with your regular furnace service from ACR Air Conditioning & Heating Inc, we have a couple tips that can help keep you cozy and get your furnace prepared for its busy season. Check and Replace Your Air Filter This is simple advice for every season in Lake Charles. 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 may 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 might drive up your utility expenses. Schedule Annual Furnace Service Fall is the perfect time in Lake Charles to get your furnace looked at by one of our highly-trained technicians.
