Fall starts in September, but the arrival of October is when you can genuinely begin to feel the change in seasons. As people shift over to a Halloween type of mood, the temperatures will also start to cool off. It’s a refreshing change, but it also means that winter is not too far off.
This is why we think of October as Official Heating Maintenance Month. Or semi-official, because you can also have maintenance done at other times of the fall. We just think October is the ideal time to have it taken care of: right before the holiday rush starts when the weather still isn’t cold enough you need the heater running most of the day.
