There are plenty of simple things you can do in between pro maintenance to increase 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 highlight this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or replace them when suggested. This is such a straightforward way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and uphold top 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 frequently to confirm that it’s working properly. Just turn it on and slowly lift 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 extra thermostat tips, or give us a call.
