There are lots of straightforward things you can do in between professional 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 swap them when recommended. This is such a simple way to enhance 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 outside of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat often to ensure it’s operating correctly. Just turn it on and gradually lift the temperature setting until you catch your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, look back 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 expertly cleaned. To find out more about duct cleaning and how to tell if it’s time to hire someone, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
