There are many easy things you can do in between pro maintenance 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 highlight this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or swap them when recommended. This is such a simple way to increase the airflow through your furnace and uphold peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This means keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to guarantee it’s operating correctly. Just turn it on and gradually increase 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 extra thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you see dust gathering around your cool air returns or masses of debris within your ducts, think about having your ducts expertly cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to tell if it’s time to hire someone, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
