As spring approaches quickly, the warm weather will begin to set in and soon you’ll be saying goodbye to your furnace until the fall. Your furnace works 24/7 to keep your home warm during the winter months, and near the end of the season, it’s a good idea to say thank you to our furnace by performing some very simple maintenance tasks. Not only will this maintenance ensure your furnace is ready to go for the next time you need it, but it’ll also ensure that your furnace is working as efficiently as possible, saving you money in the future. Before saying goodbye to your furnace for the season, consider following these simple spring maintenance tips.
Change Your Furnace Filter
If you have central air conditioning for the summer, your air is being filtered through your furnace all year long. Take the time to change your furnace filter this spring as it’s a very simple form of maintenance that’ll benefit you all year round. Ideally, you should be changing your furnace filter once at least every 90 days and checking it for clogs at least once every 30.
Clean Your Furnace Room
While you’re partaking in your regular spring cleaning, a great way to perform simple furnace maintenance is to take the time to clean the room your furnace is in as well. Although this room is often forgotten about, keeping it clean and free from dust will help your home’s overall air quality. A quick sweep and dust through your furnace room this spring can really make a difference!
Inspect Your Exterior Intake Pipe
Your furnace has an exterior pipe that’s usually located around the side of your home. This pipe is essential to the furnace’s function but can become clogged over time by leaves, branches, dirt, mud, and other natural debris. This spring, take the time to perform simple furnace maintenance by checking the exterior pipe and ensuring that it isn’t obstructed.
Clean Your Registers
While you do your regular spring cleaning and maintenance, make sure that you give the registers in your home a little dust or wipe-down to ensure better home air quality and furnace performance. Homes with pets and small children can end up having clogged vent openings without the homeowners even noticing. This will cause your HVAC system to work harder to regulate your home’s temperature. Take the time to ensure that your vents are clear from hair, fur, dust, curtains, and even small toys.
Call For Annual Maintenance
The best thing you can do for your furnace this spring is to call the experts at Fahrhall for annual preventative maintenance. Every year it’s important to call for maintenance and inspection to ensure that your furnace is running as efficiently as possible with no signs of wear and tear or future breakdowns.
