Maintaining your furnace
is essential to keeping it functioning well and keeping you and your family cozy during the New Castle winter. If you already called Central Heating & Plumbing for your annual service
, you’re absolutely in control of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Call us at 724-401-1843 to get one scheduled.
There are many easy things you can do in between pro servicing to improve the efficiency of your furnace and keep it functioning in peak shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:
- Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or change them when suggested. This is such a easy way to improve the airflow through your furnace and uphold peak 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 regularly to confirm that it’s operating properly. Merely turn it on and gradually raise the temperature setting until you hear your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, look back to our blog post on furnace repair for additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
- If you notice dust gathering around your cool air returns or masses of dirt within your ducts, think about having your ducts efficiently cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to determine if it’s time to hire someone, go to our blog on duct cleaning.
