There are many straightforward things you can do in between professional servicing to advance the efficiency of your furnace and keep it operating in peak shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or swap them when suggested. This is such a easy way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and maintain maximum efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of barriers. This includes keeping any ventilation outside of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to ensure it’s functioning appropriately. Just turn it on and slowly increase the temperature setting until you notice your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on furnace repair for extra thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you notice dust collecting around your cool air returns or a lot of debris within your ducts, consider having your ducts efficiently cleaned. To find out more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, go to our blog on duct cleaning.
