  • 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 simple way to improve the airflow through your furnace and maintain 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 frequently to confirm that it’s functioning correctly. Simply turn it on and slowly lift 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 additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
