Maintaining your furnace is essential to keeping it operating well and keeping you and your family comfortable during the Norton winter. If you already called HCE Systems Inc for your annual service, you’re certainly on top of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Chat with us at 276-302-0076 to get one scheduled.

There are lots of simple things you can do in between pro tune-ups to increase the efficiency of your furnace and keep it running in peak shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t highlight this enough: check your filters frequently and clean or change them when recommended. This is such a simple way to enhance the airflow through your furnace and preserve top efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockages. This means keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat often to confirm that it’s operating properly. Simply turn it on and gently increase the temperature setting until you hear 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 observe dust collecting around your cool air returns or a lot of debris within your ducts, consider having your ducts expertly cleaned. To find out more about duct cleaning and how to tell if it’s time to hire someone, go to our blog on duct cleaning.
