Yearly Gas Furnace Maintenance Guide

Most Canadian households rely heavily on their gas and furnace systems. That is why maintenance is so important to stay on top.

There are certain things you can do to make sure your gas furnace is working efficiently.

Keep reading to find out more.

Change Your Filter

The first thing that you should do every season is to change your gas furnace filter. Filters can become very dirty.

Dust and debris can build up, and they make your filters work inefficiently. The gas furnace will still work but consume more energy.

Cleaning up the filters frequently or replacing them to new ones will keep the furnace system last longer.

Get a Programmable Thermostat

Try to invest in a programmable thermostat. The good news is that most systems come with this when they are installed.

If you don’t have one of these thermostats, it doesn’t cost much to get one and install it yourself. These thermostats can be programmed to stay at a specific temperature for better efficiency.

This is also a great way to control the temperature while you are away from your home. It will keep your system optimized and operated more efficiently and last longer.

Clean Vents

Air vents often start to collect a variety of build-up over time. This usually includes dust and particles that may be in your home.

You should take some time to clean them so that the air can come through freely. Clogged vents will affect the efficiency of the furnace system. Dirty vents will also release more contaminants into the air in your home.

If vents are very dirty or you don’t have time to do cleaning up, contact a professional HVAC company for vent cleaning.
