There are many straightforward things you can do in between expert tune-ups to improve 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 stress this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or swap them when suggested. This is such a simple way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and preserve maximum efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockages. This includes keeping any ventilation outside of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to confirm that it’s operating correctly. Simply turn it on and gently raise 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 collecting around your cool air returns or a great deal of dust within your ducts, think about having your ducts professionally cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, go to our blog on duct cleaning.
