There are many straightforward things you can do in between professional tune-ups to advance 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 often and clean or change them when suggested. This is such a easy 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 out of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat often to ensure it’s functioning appropriately. Simply turn it on and gradually lift the temperature setting until you notice your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer to our blog post on furnace repair for additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you notice dust gathering around your cool air returns or masses of dirt within your ducts, think about having your ducts expertly cleaned. To learn more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
