- Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters often and clean or change them when suggested. This is such a simple way to increase the airflow through your furnace and maintain top efficiency.
- Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of barriers. This comprises of keeping any ventilation out of your home clear.
- Test your thermostat often to ensure it’s working appropriately. Merely turn it on and gently 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 more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
