There are many straightforward things you can do in between professional servicing to increase 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 stress this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or replace them when recommended. This is such a easy way to increase the airflow through your furnace and maintain top efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This includes keeping any ventilation out of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to confirm that it’s operating appropriately. Merely turn it on and gently lift the temperature setting until you notice 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.
  • If you see dust gathering around your cool air returns or a great deal of dust within your ducts, contemplate having your ducts expertly cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
