Along with your routine furnace service from Southern Heating & Cooling Inc., we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfortable and get your furnace prepped for its busy season. Check and Change Your Air Filter This is easy advice for every season in Scottsboro. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go change 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 relocated furniture or brought more into the house, ensure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to increase your utility expenses.
