There are many simple things you can do in between pro tune-ups to increase the efficiency of your furnace and keep it functioning in tip top 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 swap them when advised. This is such a straightforward way to increase the airflow through your furnace and maintain maximum efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This includes keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to confirm that it’s functioning correctly. Simply turn it on and slowly increase the temperature setting until you catch your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, look back to our blog post on furnace repair for extra thermostat tips, or give us a call.

Keeping you and your family warm and comfortable matters to us. For more ideas on DIY furnace maintenance or to set-up a tune-up with one of our pros, call Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating at 641-628-3621 or arrange an appointment online. We’re happy to help!
