The Ultimate Furnace Upkeep Checklist

Keeping your furnace in excellent condition before winter is far more beneficial and cost-effective than waiting until the last minute. If you don’t maintain it during summer, it might get more damaged by the time you have to use it. Despite having mild winters, the nights in Las Vegas can get extremely cold, and you need a sound heating system to sleep peacefully.

Using our extensive experience in HVAC repair and maintenance, we have prepared an easy-to-follow checklist that will help you maintain the furnace of your heating systems.

Filters Replacement

The best way to ensure optimal efficiency of your heating system is to replace the furnace filter. These filters clean the air from the HVAC systems before sending it into your home and catch a lot of dirt and debris. If you don’t change them frequently, the air quality in your home will be low, and the furnace will have to work harder to push air through a clogged filter.

If you feel that your home has more dust than usual, this might be because the furnace is sending dirty air and needs filter replacement.

Air Duct Insulation and Sealing

Hot air can leak into the ducts without adequate sealing and insulation, sending less heat to the home. Your furnace will have to work harder and use more energy than usual. Ensure the air ducts are insulated and sealed to have a consistent and comfortable temperature in your home.

Cleaning The Area Around Air Conditioners and Furnace

Air conditioners and furnaces require some space to take the air in. If their surroundings are filled with random things and left uncleaned, it will suck all the dirt inside and fill the HVAC system with dirt and grime.

Make sure you clean out the surrounding area and sweep around regularly. The outdoor HVAC units also need the same care to clear any long grass, branches, plants, or debris interrupting clean airflow.

Upgrade The Thermostat

Upgrading the thermostat is the best way to reduce energy consumption and effortlessly control the temperature of your house. Nowadays, there are many options for Wi-Fi-enabled smart thermostats that you can operate from your smartphone or devices. Upgrading to these thermostats will allow you to set the desired temperature rather than letting it run indefinitely.

A smart thermostat also offers reminders for maintenance or if your heating system is using more temperature due to system failure. You can create different schedules for different times of the day, pre-heat your home, and enjoy many innovative features.

Install, Monitor, and Maintain Carbon Monoxide Detector

Install a carbon monoxide detector if you already have one. The HVAC system can emit poisonous CO gas into the air you breathe if there are any leaks. With these detectors, you’ll know when there’s any hazardous gas inside the home to take prompt action. Monitor these detectors and replace their battery after a year to ensure their functionality.
