(KSL News) -- Perhaps the first taste of autumn temperatures had you reaching to adjust the thermostat. This is a good time to inspect your furnaces, before you put them to work for the winter.
Scott Eastman, Furnace Technician: "After air conditioning season, we need to make sure that we replace the furnace filter. As much as the blower ran last summer, there's a lot of dirt and dust that may have accumulated."
Eastman says natural gas furnaces also need to be adjusted periodically to make sure there's no carbon monoxide escaping.
If you're mecanically inclined, you might be able to get an old furnace in top shape for the winter, but newer furnace owners will probably need to have a technician do an inspection.
The best advice is get your furnace looked at now. The technicians say they get very busy when the snow flakes fly in November.
