As summer slowly fades away and the cool breeze of fall will soon be upon us, homeowners start to wonder when to switch their furnaces over to prepare for winter. For those who own homes, the significance of gearing up for the colder season and ensuring the proper functioning of their heating units is well understood. To guarantee a smoothly operating furnace during the winter months, enlist the services of a professional to inspect your A/C and furnace. Our Affordable Service Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Electric team provides expert service and will be ready to help!

Understanding the optimal time for the switch is essential to ensure thorough preparation. According to experts, activating your furnace when the indoor temperature drops below an average of 68 degrees is advisable. This is when the chill outside seeps in, creating the need for warmth indoors. Once this temperature shift occurs, it’s a clear signal to reach out to us.
