Prep Your Home for Fall in 3 Easy Steps

With temperatures cooling off each day, we know that Omaha’s fall weather is on its way! As a homeowner, what can you do to prepare your home and heating and cooling system for this seasonal change? Getzschman Heating and Cooling suggests these three steps to prep your home for fall.

 
Schedule a Tune-Up for Your Furnace
 
It is about time to begin using your home’s furnace again. However before you start using it full time, it is always a good idea to schedule a furnace tune-up in order to make sure everything is working properly and running efficiently.
 
Change the Batteries in Your Carbon Monoxide Detectors & Smoke Alarms
 
It is also wise to add checking the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors to the routine, when performing the fall tasks that come along with your home’s heating and cooli ng system. Why is this? Changing the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors can give you a little peace of mind and helps to ensure the safety of your family.
 
Change the Air Filter in Your Heating & Cooling System
 
As your heating and cooling system runs, dirt builds up in its filters. As time goes on, your system can get clogged up. Because of this, at Getzschman Heating and Cooling, we recommend changing the air filter in your heating and cooling system every 30 days to 3 months based on the type of filter that you have. Changing your air filter helps to prevent more serious problems that could cost you money down the road.
