March 15, 2017

 

Maintaining your furnace is vital to keeping it operating well and keeping you and your family cozy during the Bossier City chill. If you already called Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc for your annual tune-up, you’re absolutely on top of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Call us at 318-855-2326 to get one scheduled.

There are many straightforward things you can do in between pro tune-ups to advance 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 stress this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or replace them when suggested. This is such a easy way to enhance 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 outside of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to guarantee it’s functioning correctly. Simply turn it on and gradually 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 more thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you see dust accumulating around your cool air returns or a great deal of debris within your ducts, think about having your ducts professionally cleaned. To learn more about duct cleaning and how to tell if it’s time to hire someone, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
