There are lots of straightforward things you can do in between expert maintenance to improve 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 highlight this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or change them when recommended. This is such a easy way to improve the airflow through your furnace and preserve peak 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 often to ensure it’s operating properly. Just turn it on and slowly lift the temperature setting until you catch your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer to our blog post on furnace repair for extra thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you observe dust gathering around your cool air returns or a great deal of dirt within your ducts, think about having your ducts professionally cleaned. To find out more about duct cleaning and how to determine if it’s time to hire someone, go to our blog on duct cleaning.
