There are lots of easy things you can do in between professional 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 replace them when advised. This is such a easy way to increase the airflow through your furnace and preserve maximum efficiency.
- Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of barriers. This means keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
- Test your thermostat regularly to confirm that it’s operating correctly. Simply turn it on and slowly 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 more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
- If you observe dust gathering around your cool air returns or masses of dust within your ducts, think about having your ducts efficiently cleaned. To learn more about duct cleaning and how to determine if it’s time to hire someone, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
