There are plenty of straightforward things you can do in between pro maintenance to improve the efficiency of your furnace and keep it running 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 often and clean or change them when advised. This is such a straightforward way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and preserve top efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This includes keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to confirm that it’s working properly. Simply turn it on and gently increase 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 observe dust collecting around your cool air returns or masses of dust within your ducts, consider having your ducts professionally 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.
