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