Between professional tune-ups, there are quite a few things you can do to keep your furnace working at its peak performance. Try these maintenance tips to keep your furnace on track:
- To make sure your system is running properly, test your thermostat regularly. Turn it on and slowly increase the temperature setting until you hear your furnace turn on. If you don’t hear anything, check out our blog post on furnace repair for thermostat troubleshooting or schedule an appointment with us.
- Check your filters frequently and clean or change them when recommended. We can’t emphasize this enough. It’s a an easy way to increase the airflow through your furnace and maintain peak efficiency.
- Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockage. This includes keeping the ventilation outside of your home clear.
- Think about having your air ducts professionally cleaned if you notice dust collecting around your cool air returns or notable debris in your ducts. To hear more about duct cleaning and the indications it’s time to hire someone, go back to our blog on duct cleaning.
