There are lots of straightforward things you can do in between pro maintenance to increase the efficiency of your furnace and keep it functioning in peak shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters often and clean or swap them when recommended. This is such a straightforward way to increase the airflow through your furnace and preserve peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockages. This means keeping any ventilation outside of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to guarantee it’s working properly. Just turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until you hear your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on furnace repair for more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you see dust gathering around your cool air returns or a lot of dust 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, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
