How to Keep Your Hickory Home Comfortable This Winter

 

Maintaining your furnace is essential to keeping it operating well and keeping you and your family cozy during the Hickory colder months. If you already called Climate Control Systems for your annual service, you’re certainly in control of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Call us at 828-283-0369 to get one on the calendar.

There are many straightforward things you can do in between professional servicing 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 frequently 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 obstructions. This includes keeping any ventilation outside of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat often to confirm that it’s operating properly. Simply turn it on and gently raise 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 collecting around your cool air returns or a lot of debris 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.
