There are many simple things you can do in between pro maintenance 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 stress this enough: check your filters often and clean or swap them when advised. This is such a easy way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and preserve maximum efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of barriers. This includes keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat often to confirm that it’s functioning properly. Simply turn it on and gently increase the temperature setting until you hear your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer 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 dirt within your ducts, consider having your ducts professionally cleaned. To learn more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, go to our blog on duct cleaning.
