Maintaining your furnace is vital to keeping it operating well and keeping you and your family warm during the Dallas winter. If you already called Tri County Air Care LLC for your annual service, you’re definitely on top of things. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Call us at 469-213-8367 to get one scheduled.

There are lots of easy things you can do in between expert servicing to improve 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 stress this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or change them when suggested. This is such a straightforward way to increase the airflow through your furnace and preserve peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of barriers. This means keeping any ventilation outside of your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat frequently to confirm that it’s working properly. Merely turn it on and slowly raise 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 extra thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you notice dust gathering around your cool air returns or a lot of dust within your ducts, consider having your ducts professionally cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
