There are plenty of easy things you can do in between pro tune-ups to advance the efficiency of your furnace and keep it running in peak 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 suggested. This is such a easy way to increase 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 outside of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to confirm that it’s operating correctly. Just turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until you notice 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 notice dust collecting around your cool air returns or a lot of dust within your ducts, think about having your ducts expertly cleaned. To learn more about duct cleaning and how to tell if it’s time to hire someone, go to our blog on duct cleaning.
