There are many easy things you can do in between professional servicing to improve the efficiency of your furnace and keep it functioning in the best shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:
- Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t stress this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or swap them when recommended. This is such a easy way to increase the airflow through your furnace and maintain top efficiency.
- Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of barriers. This means keeping any ventilation out of your home clear.
- Test your thermostat regularly to ensure it’s operating properly. Merely turn it on and gradually increase 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 additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
- If you notice dust collecting around your cool air returns or masses of dirt within your ducts, contemplate having your ducts efficiently cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to determine if it’s time to hire someone, go to our blog on duct cleaning.
