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 change them when suggested. This is such a simple way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and maintain maximum efficiency. Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of barriers. This means keeping any ventilation outside of your home clear. Test your thermostat often to confirm that it’s working appropriately. Merely turn it on and gently increase the temperature setting until you catch your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on furnace repair for extra thermostat tips, or give us a call.
