There are plenty of easy things you can do in between professional servicing to improve the efficiency of your furnace and keep it running in peak shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:
- Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters often and clean or replace them when suggested. This is such a straightforward way to improve the airflow through your furnace and maintain maximum efficiency.
- Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockages. This means keeping any ventilation out of your home clear.
- Test your thermostat frequently to guarantee 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 additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
- If you notice dust gathering around your cool air returns or masses of debris within your ducts, consider having your ducts expertly cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to determine if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
