There are many simple things you can do in between professional tune-ups to increase the efficiency of your furnace and keep it running in the best shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or replace them when recommended. This is such a straightforward way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and uphold top 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 confirm that it’s functioning appropriately. Simply turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until you catch your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on furnace repair for additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you observe dust collecting around your cool air returns or a great deal of dust within your ducts, think about having your ducts efficiently cleaned. To find out more about duct cleaning and how to tell if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
