How to Keep Your New Castle Home Comfortable This Winter

Service

Maintaining your furnace is vital to keeping it running well and keeping you and your family cozy during the New Castle chill. If you already called Central Heating & Plumbing for your annual check-up, you’re certainly on top of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Call us at 724-658-7111 to get one scheduled.

There are lots of easy things you can do in between pro tune-ups to improve the efficiency of your furnace and keep it running in the best shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters often and clean or change them when advised. This is such a simple way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and maintain top efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockages. This means keeping any ventilation out of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat often to ensure it’s functioning appropriately. Just turn it on and gradually 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 more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you notice dust collecting around your cool air returns or a lot of dirt within your ducts, consider having your ducts expertly cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to determine if it’s time to hire someone, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
