Regular Inspections are Crucial

One of the key pieces of advice from Vacu-Man is the importance of regular furnace inspections. These should ideally be conducted annually before the onset of the cold season. Professional inspections can identify potential issues before they become serious problems, ensuring your furnace operates efficiently and safely.

Changing Filters Regularly

A simple yet effective way to maintain your furnace is to regularly change or clean its air filters. This should be done every three months, or more frequently if you have pets or someone in your home has allergies. Clean filters improve the efficiency of your furnace and the overall air quality in your home.

Keeping Vents Clear

Ensure that all vents in your home are free from obstructions. Furniture, curtains, or rugs blocking the vents can restrict airflow, forcing your furnace to work harder and potentially leading to overheating.

Checking the Thermostat

A malfunctioning thermostat can lead to significant issues with your heating system. Regularly check that your thermostat is working correctly and consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat for better temperature control and energy efficiency.

Experienced Duct Cleaning

A critical aspect often overlooked in furnace maintenance is duct cleaning. Over time, ducts accumulate dust, debris, and other contaminants that can affect the performance of your furnace and the quality of your indoor air. Vacu-Man recommends professional duct cleaning as part of your regular furnace maintenance routine to ensure optimal performance of your heating system.
