There are lots of simple things you can do in between professional maintenance to increase 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 frequently and clean or replace them when recommended. This is such a straightforward way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and preserve maximum efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This includes keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to guarantee it’s operating properly. Just turn it on and gently lift the temperature setting until you notice your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on furnace repair for additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you notice dust collecting around your cool air returns or a lot of dust within your ducts, think about having your ducts professionally cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to tell if it’s time to hire someone, go to our blog on duct cleaning.
