There are many easy things you can do in between expert maintenance to advance the efficiency of your furnace and keep it running in peak shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters often and clean or change them when advised. This is such a easy way to increase the airflow through your furnace and preserve peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of barriers. This comprises of keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat often to confirm that it’s operating properly. Merely turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until you catch your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, look back to our blog post on furnace repair for additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you observe dust accumulating around your cool air returns or a lot of dirt within your ducts, consider having your ducts expertly cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to tell if it’s time to hire someone, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
