Keeping your furnace maintained is essential for a comfortable home and long-term savings on your energy bills. Here are a few tips to help you ensure your furnace is running as efficiently as possible.
1. Change the air filter. This should be done at least once a month during the heating season. A dirty or clogged filter can reduce airflow, making your furnace work harder, leading to higher energy costs and a shorter lifespan.
2. Clean the blower. Blower fans can accumulate dust and debris and should be cleaned regularly. To clean, carefully remove the fan and vacuum off any dust with a brush attachment.
3. Check the thermostat. Make sure the thermostat is working properly and is set at the right temperature. A malfunctioning thermostat can cause your furnace to run inefficiently.
4. Have your system serviced annually. Have a qualified technician from Allied Heating & Air Colorado inspect, clean, and tune-up your furnace. This service will ensure that your system is operating safely and efficiently.
