When To Turn on Your Furnace This Fall

Colder weather is approaching and the rain is starting back up again. If you’re a homeowner looking to save on energy costs, you may have been postponing turning on your furnace for the first time this season. But did you know? Turning on your furnace sooner than later will help ensure you’re prepared for the months ahead and save you money in repair/replacements costs down the line.

Why turn on your furnace now? You’ll want to test to make sure your furnace is in great working order before cold weather hits! Many make the mistake of waiting to fire up their furnaces only to find they’re not functioning properly. An issue could have developed any time since you turned off your furnace in spring or early summer.

We recommend scheduling a furnace tune-up to check for any problems and ensure your furnace is running safely and effectively. Our service schedule is less busy during more moderate temperatures in the early fall months, making now the perfect time to schedule repairs or annual maintenance. Many companies become overwhelmed and overbooked with repair and replacement requests when severe weather hits.

Contact Columbia Heating & Cooling today to schedule your annual maintenance. We’ll inspect your furnace to ensure its in proper working order and running smoothly for the months ahead.

And don’t forget: we’re currently offering tune-up specials for your furnace, fireplace or air conditioner. Combine any 2 tune-ups and save an additional $10 off the total cost. This special lasts through December 31st, call us today!
