Winter Furnace Maintenance Tips for Homeowners

In this blog post, our team of experts delves into essential furnace maintenance tips every homeowner should know.

  1. Professional Inspection: Our #1 furnace maintenance tip is to book a professional inspection with our certified technicians. We are highly trained to identify potential issues, properly and safely clean and lubricate furnace components as needed, and know how to make any necessary adjustments to ensure safe and efficient furnace performance.
  2. Replace Air Filers: Your furnace will perform better and your home’s air quality will be improved if you are regularly replacing your home’s air filters. When air filters are dirty, your furnace must work twice as hard to get the job done. A fringe benefit of replacing your air filters: you can save money on your utility bills when your furnace is working efficiently.
  3. Inspect and Clean Vents and Ducts: Airflow that is restricted due to blocked and dirty air vents and ducts can cause serious strain on your furnace. Similar to dirty air filters, this can potentially cause your furnace to work overtime, costing you more money and putting your furnace at risk for premature system failure. Add air vent/duct inspection and cleaning into your furnace maintenance plan.
