There are plenty of straightforward things you can do in between professional servicing to advance the efficiency of your furnace and keep it operating in the best shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or change them when recommended. This is such a simple way to improve the airflow through your furnace and uphold top efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockages. This includes keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat often to ensure it’s operating properly. Simply turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until you catch your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on furnace repair for additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you see dust collecting around your cool air returns or a great deal of debris within your ducts, contemplate having your ducts efficiently cleaned. To learn more about duct cleaning and how to tell if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
