Here are some furnace advice and tips you can practice to make sure your furnace continues to provide great service for you home comfort:


Clean Your Furnace

A dirty furnace is the biggest enemy to it working efficiently. It wastes fuel and reduces a warm air flow. It may also cause your furnace to overheat. Cleaning your furnace is considered to be the most important facet of regular maintenance. You should make sure the filter system, the motor, and the blower are regularly cleaned and serviced.

Clean the Filter – Your filter should be cleaned or replaced at the beginning of the cold season and each month during continual use. A permanent filter is usually sprayed with a special filter-coating chemical, available at hardware stores and home centers.

Replace the Filter – Replacing a filter is quite easy and is very important to maintain optimal furnace operation. It usually involves removing a panel by slipping or unscrewing the housing. Replace with correct size that is marked on the side of the filter.

Clean the blower – cleaning the blower pulleys, belts, and assembly is important if your furnace has a squirrel-cage fan. The openings in this blower easily become clogged with dirt. To clean, just remove the panel covering the filter to gain access and slide out the fan unit. This is not as easy as changing and cleaning the filter so you might want a professional to complete this task.
