As the seasons start to change, there's always a lot going on here in Olathe. Kids are back in school, which means after school sports and activities, not to mention shopping for winter clothes, handling weekend chores, decorating for the holidays, and preparing the house for visiting friends and family. With so much going on, it can be easy to put things like an Olathe furnace tune-up off until the last minute… or until the last minute has already passed!
After all, the average temperatures for October around Kansas City range from 47 to 68 degrees, so chances are Olathe homeowners are going to be switching from A/C to heat pretty soon—if they haven't already! But switching on your furnace for the first time after around 6 or 7 months isn't something you should just do without taking a few precautions first.
Before you turn on your furnace for the first time this year, make sure that you change out your furnace filters! Clean filters not only improve the quality of your air and help keep your family safer; they also make your furnace more efficient and stave off costlier problems down the road. It might also be a good idea to adjust the dampers on your furnace and make sure that the registers on all of your vents are opened correctly, so that the heat gets to the right areas of your home.
Of course, you should check your furnace to make sure that everything is working as it should be before you really need it, so try turning your furnace on a few times before it gets really cold out, and see if it heats your house up to the set temperature in a timely fashion. If not—or if any of this leaves you scratching your head—then it's time to call an Olathe heating and cooling professional and schedule a tune-up. Having a professional take a look at your furnace at least once a year is always a good idea anyway, and there's no better time for an Olathe furnace tune-up than before the cold weather really hits.
According to the Department of Energy, a furnace that's running at peak efficiency can save you up to 15% on your heating bill, and with heating and cooling amounting to around 43% of your total utility bills, that adds up. That's why at Davenport Service Company we make keeping your furnace running smoothly an important part of our VIP Program, which gets you two full 25-point HVAC tune-ups per year, including an Olathe furnace tune-up before the cold weather hits. And all of that is in addition to myriad other perks, including discounted rates and same-day service.
