There are plenty of straightforward things you can do in between professional maintenance to improve the efficiency of your furnace and keep it operating 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 replace them when advised. This is such a simple way to improve the airflow through your furnace and preserve top efficiency.
- Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of barriers. This includes keeping any ventilation out of your home clear.
- Test your thermostat regularly to confirm that it’s operating appropriately. Merely turn it on and gently raise the temperature setting until you notice 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 accumulating around your cool air returns or a great deal of dirt within your ducts, consider having your ducts professionally 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.
