Between professional maintenance, there are plenty things you can do to keep your furnace working at its peak performance. Try these maintenance ideas to keep your furnace in good shape:
- To make sure your system is operating properly, test your thermostat regularly. Turn it on and gradually increase the temperature setting until you hear your furnace start. If you don’t hear anything, check out our blog post on furnace repair for thermostat troubleshooting or give us a call.
- Check your filters often and clean or change them when recommended. We can’t recommend this enough. It’s a an efficient 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 all ventilation outside of your home clear.
- Think about having your air ducts professionally cleaned if you observe dust collecting around your cool air returns or notable debris in your ducts. To hear more about duct cleaning and the signs it’s time to hire someone, head to our blog on duct cleaning.
