If you want to be comfortable during the Excelsior Springs winter, your furnace will demand some maintenance to have it running at its best.

Between professional tune-ups, there are quite a few things you can do to keep your furnace operating at its peak performance. Try these maintenance tricks to keep your furnace on track:

  • To make sure your system is working properly, test your thermostat on a routine basis. Turn it on and bit by bit increase the temperature setting until you hear your furnace kick on. If you don’t hear anything, consult our blog post on furnace repair for thermostat troubleshooting or give us a call.
  • Check your filters regularly and clean or change them when recommended. We can’t recommend this enough. It’s a a simple way to increase the airflow through your furnace and maintain peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This includes keeping all ventilation outside of your home clear.
  • Look in to having your air ducts professionally cleaned if you see dust collecting around your cool air returns or notable debris in your ducts. To hear more about duct cleaning and the signs it’s time to hire someone, refer to our blog on duct cleaning.
