There are many straightforward things you can do in between pro maintenance to advance the efficiency of your furnace and keep it operating in peak 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 straightforward way to improve the airflow through your furnace and uphold top efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This means keeping any ventilation out of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to ensure it’s functioning properly. Merely turn it on and gently raise the temperature setting until you notice your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer to our blog post on furnace repair for extra thermostat tips, or give us a call.
