Along with your regular furnace service from Knoechel Heating Company, we have a couple tips that may help keep you comfy and get your furnace prepped for its busy season. Check and Change Your Air Filter This is basic advice for every season in Zelienople. Before you make that switch from “cool” to “heat,” go swap out your filter from dirty to clean. A dusty filter means your furnace has to run harder to keep you warm which might negatively impact your comfort and mean higher bills. Unblock Heating Vents and Registers As you’ve rearranged furniture or brought more into the house, make sure you haven’t blocked any of your heating vents. A blocked vent has the chance to drive up your utility bills.
