  • Check your filters often and clean or change them when recommended. We can’t emphasize this enough. It’s a an easy way to boost the airflow through your furnace and preserve peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockage. This includes keeping any ventilation outside of your home clear.
