There are many simple things you can do in between professional 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 stress this enough: check your filters often and clean or swap them when suggested. This is such a easy way to improve the airflow through your furnace and preserve top efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This means keeping any ventilation out of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to guarantee it’s operating properly. Just turn it on and slowly lift the temperature setting until you hear your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer to our blog post on furnace repair for more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you see dust collecting around your cool air returns or a lot of dirt within your ducts, think about having your ducts professionally cleaned. To find out more about duct cleaning and how to tell if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
