There are many straightforward things you can do in between professional servicing to advance 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 stress this enough: check your filters often and clean or change them when recommended. This is such a straightforward way to improve the airflow through your furnace and uphold peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of barriers. This means keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to ensure it’s functioning properly. Just turn it on and gently lift the temperature setting until you hear your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, look back to our blog post on furnace repair for additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you see dust accumulating around your cool air returns or a great deal of dirt within your ducts, think about having your ducts efficiently cleaned. To learn more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
