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

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t stress this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or swap them when advised. This is such a easy way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and preserve maximum 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 confirm that it’s functioning appropriately. Merely turn it on and gently raise the temperature setting until you hear your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, look back to our blog post on furnace repair for more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you notice dust accumulating around your cool air returns or masses of dust within your ducts, think about having your ducts expertly cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
