There are plenty of straightforward things you can do in between pro tune-ups to increase the efficiency of your furnace and keep it functioning in peak shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:
- Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or change them when advised. This is such a easy way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and uphold maximum 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 frequently to confirm that it’s functioning correctly. Just turn it on and gradually lift 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 more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
- If you see dust collecting around your cool air returns or a lot of debris within your ducts, consider having your ducts expertly 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.
