5 Tips to Keep Your Furnace Running at Optimal Condition
Check your Filter
Make sure your filter is clean – a clogged or dirty filter will significantly restrict the flow of heated air from your furnace. This will cause it to work harder and deliver less heat, raising your monthly energy bills.
Check your Home Vents
Much like the filter, a blocked vent leads to decreased furnace efficiency. The air in your home needs to circulate easily through the vents – so cooler air can be easily returned to the furnace and your home is kept comfortable.
Ensure Proper Placement of the Blower Doors
Proper blower door placement keeps your home safe. Secure doors ensure combustion byproducts, like deadly carbon monoxide, do not get mixed in with the warm air circulated through your home.
Check your Blower Belt
Check to make sure your belt isn’t frayed or cracked. A loose belt increases the running time of your furnace, which increases your monthly energy bills.
Remove all Flammable Objects near your Furnace and Water Heater
To remove any potential fire hazards, ensure the entire area around both your furnace and water heater is clear of boxes, clothes, paints and any other miscellaneous objects which could be flammable.
