There are plenty of straightforward things you can do in between expert servicing 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 regularly and clean or replace them when advised. 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 obstructions. This includes keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to confirm that it’s functioning correctly. Just turn it on and gradually lift 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 a great deal of dirt within your ducts, think about having your ducts efficiently cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to determine if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
