There are lots of straightforward things you can do in between pro servicing to improve the efficiency of your furnace and keep it functioning 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 frequently and clean or change them when suggested. This is such a easy way to increase the airflow through your furnace and uphold maximum 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 often to ensure it’s working appropriately. Merely turn it on and gently lift the temperature setting until you catch your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer to our blog post on furnace repair for extra thermostat tips, or give us a call.
- If you see dust collecting around your cool air returns or a lot of debris within your ducts, contemplate having your ducts expertly cleaned. To learn more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
