There are many easy things you can do in between professional tune-ups to advance the efficiency of your furnace and keep it operating in tip top 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 change them when recommended. This is such a easy way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and preserve top efficiency.
- Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This comprises of keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
- Test your thermostat often to guarantee it’s operating correctly. Merely turn it on and slowly raise 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 more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
- If you see dust collecting around your cool air returns or a lot 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, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
