There are plenty of simple things you can do in between professional servicing to increase 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 emphasize this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or replace them when advised. This is such a straightforward way to improve the airflow through your furnace and maintain top efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of barriers. This comprises of keeping any ventilation outside of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat often to guarantee it’s functioning appropriately. Simply turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until you catch your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on furnace repair for extra thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you notice dust accumulating around your cool air returns or a lot of dust within your ducts, contemplate having your ducts expertly cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
