There are lots of easy things you can do in between professional servicing to improve the efficiency of your furnace and keep it operating in tip top shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:
- Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or change them when advised. 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 includes keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
- Test your thermostat often to guarantee it’s functioning properly. Merely turn it on and slowly raise the temperature setting until you notice 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 debris 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.
