Essential DIY Tips for Furnace Maintenance

Heating and cooling are integral to a comfortable home-life and JBD Air Conditioning & Heating Services, Inc. understands this more than anyone else. As experts, we encourage homeowners to take preventive measures to maintain their furnace and air conditioning units. Though we offer professional help, some basic tasks can be performed by homeowners themselves.

Inspecting Your Filters

One of the simplest yet significant ways to keep your furnace running efficiently is by regularly inspecting and changing your air filters. Filters should be replaced every one to three months. Doing this can help your HVAC system work more efficiently, reduce energy bills and extend its lifespan.

A comprehensive guide on checking your air filter can help you perform this task with ease. It’s a small task when compared to the potential damage that can occur from a clogged filter.

Clean Your Furnace

Cleaning your furnace is a crucial aspect of maintenance. Dust and grime can collect around your furnace, hampering its performance. A simple wipe-down with a cloth can help. Ensure that you clean the blower assembly, pulleys, and belts along with the furnace.

Remember, before you start cleaning, always turn off the power to your HVAC unit. If you are unsure about anything, our skilled technicians at JBD Air Conditioning & Heating Services, Inc. are readily available to assist you.

Inspect the Thermostat

A faulty thermostat could have a significant impact on your furnace efficiency. It’s crucial to check that your thermostat is working correctly and is set at the right temperature. If you notice that your furnace isn’t warming your home even when the thermostat is cranked up, it might be time for a replacement.
