There are lots of easy things you can do in between expert servicing to increase the efficiency of your furnace and keep it running in the best shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or replace them when advised. This is such a easy way to improve the airflow through your furnace and uphold peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This includes keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat often to ensure it’s working properly. Merely turn it on and gradually lift the temperature setting until you catch 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.
