There are many simple things you can do in between expert tune-ups to increase the efficiency of your furnace and keep it running in the best 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 change them when advised. 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 means keeping any ventilation out of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to guarantee it’s operating correctly. Simply turn it on and gently increase the temperature setting until you catch 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 collecting around your cool air returns or masses of dirt within your ducts, contemplate having your ducts efficiently cleaned. To find out more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
