Annual Furnace Maintenance Checklist

Here are the top 10 essential DIY furnace maintenance activities that everyone should perform at least once a year.

Clean Your Air Ducts, Vents, and Furnace Filters

When it comes to heat transfer having proper airflow is critical. Clean your vents and replace your furnace filter at least twice a year.

Check For Leaking Doors and Windows

Every little bit of heat you let out is like throwing cash in the trash. If you have broken windows or old doors, now might be the time to fix them.

Clean Your Heat Exchanger

Your heat exchanger is a critical component: it heats the air used to generate the heat in your home. It also needs cleaning at least once a year and ensure it functions properly.

Check Up on Your Blower Motor and Fan

Your blower motor circulates the air into the vents, and dust buildup on the blower fan vanes can stop it from functioning correctly.
