There are plenty of simple things you can do in between expert servicing to improve 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 highlight this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or change them when recommended. This is such a easy way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and uphold peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockages. This includes keeping any ventilation out of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to confirm that it’s working appropriately. Simply turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until you catch 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 see dust collecting around your cool air returns or masses of debris within your ducts, think about having your ducts expertly cleaned. To learn more about duct cleaning and how to determine if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
