There are many straightforward things you can do in between expert tune-ups to advance the efficiency of your furnace and keep it functioning in the best 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 replace them when recommended. This is such a simple way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and preserve top efficiency.
- Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockages. This comprises of keeping any ventilation outside of your home clear.
- Test your thermostat frequently to confirm that 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, check back to our blog post on furnace repair for more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
- If you see dust accumulating around your cool air returns or a lot of dirt within your ducts, think about having your ducts efficiently cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to determine if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
