March 15, 2017

 

Maintaining your furnace is vital to keeping it functioning well and keeping you and your family comfortable during the Neptune City chill. If you already called Aggressive Mechanical for your annual check-up, you’re absolutely in control of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Give us a call at 732-806-5536 to get one scheduled.

There are lots of straightforward things you can do in between pro tune-ups to increase 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 highlight this enough: check your filters often and clean or swap them when suggested. This is such a simple way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and uphold top efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of obstructions. This means keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat often to confirm that it’s operating correctly. Merely turn it on and gradually lift the temperature setting until you notice 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 accumulating around your cool air returns or masses of dust within your ducts, contemplate having your ducts professionally cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, go to our blog on duct cleaning.
