Furnace Maintenance Tips Every Homeowner Should Know

May 4, 2021

A neglected furnace could lead to a lot of financial risks—from increased energy bills due to an inefficient furnace to surprise repair costs if your furnace isn’t properly maintained.

The good news is that AccuServ Heating and Air Conditioning provides some of the best furnace repairs in East York. While furnace maintenance is often best handled by reliable professionals, it doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do to maintain your furnace!

With that said, here are some key tips on how to keep it in good working order—and for any major issues, be sure to get professional help from expert technicians like those at AccuServ.

Clean and Change Your Filter Regularly

A clean filter will ensure that the air circulating through your home is being moved along efficiently, which in turn will help keep your energy bill down. In fact, some estimates show that your energy bill can be cut down by anywhere from 5% to 15% with a clean air filter.

A filter is usually installed at the point where the return duct enters your furnace. The filter essentially prevents particles of debris in the air from going into the furnace to be heated. This can include keeping out dust, dust mites, pollen, pet dander, bacteria, spores, and more.

Depending on the filter, it should be cleaned or changed every 30-120 days on average. Remember to also clean the blower assembly as well as the filter. If you can’t find the blower assembly, be sure to get in touch with professionals.

Schedule Yearly Inspections

Bad noise is bad news. While some noise (aka a low humming sound) is normal, if your furnace is making unusual noises, that’s a huge red flag that your furnace needs a checkup. It’s better to address these potential issues sooner rather than later.

When you schedule regular boiler maintenance, the experts will be able to spot trouble in your furnace that you otherwise may not find. What’s more, treating issues in your furnace on your own can be unsafe for you and your family. Bringing in experts at least once a year to check on your system is never a bad idea.
