There are many easy things you can do in between pro maintenance to increase 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 regularly and clean or replace them when recommended. 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 barriers. This includes keeping any ventilation out of your home clear.
- Test your thermostat often to guarantee it’s operating properly. Merely turn it on and slowly lift the temperature setting until you hear your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, look back to our blog post on furnace repair for additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
