  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters often and clean or replace them when recommended. This is such a simple way to increase the airflow through your furnace and preserve maximum efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This comprises of keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to confirm that it’s operating properly. Just turn it on and gently lift 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 extra thermostat tips, or give us a call.
