There are lots of easy things you can do in between pro maintenance to advance the efficiency of your furnace and keep it functioning in tip top 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 easy way to improve the airflow through your furnace and uphold peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockages. This means keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to guarantee it’s working properly. Simply turn it on and gradually increase 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 observe dust gathering around your cool air returns or a lot of dirt within your ducts, think about having your ducts professionally cleaned. To learn more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, go to our blog on duct cleaning.
