There are many simple things you can do in between expert servicing to advance the efficiency of your furnace and keep it functioning in peak shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:
- Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters often and clean or swap them when suggested. This is such a simple way to improve the airflow through your furnace and preserve peak efficiency.
- Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This means keeping any ventilation outside of your home clear.
- Test your thermostat regularly to ensure it’s operating correctly. Simply turn it on and slowly lift the temperature setting until you notice 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 collecting around your cool air returns or a lot of dirt within your ducts, think about having your ducts expertly cleaned. To find out more about duct cleaning and how to determine if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
