  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or replace them when suggested. This is such a straightforward way to improve the airflow through your furnace and maintain peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This comprises of keeping any ventilation outside of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to confirm that it’s working properly. Just turn it on and gradually increase the temperature setting until you hear your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, refer to our blog post on furnace repair for more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you see dust collecting around your cool air returns or a great deal of debris within your ducts, think about having your ducts professionally cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, look at our blog on duct cleaning.
