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 emphasize this enough: check your filters often and clean or swap them when advised. This is such a simple way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and preserve peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockages. This comprises of keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat often to ensure it’s operating properly. Merely turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until you hear 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 accumulating around your cool air returns or a great deal of debris within your ducts, think about having your ducts professionally cleaned. To learn more about duct cleaning and how to tell if it’s time to hire someone, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
