Heating and Cooling Ottawa: Furnace Maintenance Tips

Here are some helpful furnace maintenance tips that you can easily do yourself. These tips will save you money and help your furnace last longer.

1. Replace Your Filter:

Change your furnace air filter every one to three months to ensure that it is working efficiently. If you have your fan set to continuously run, then you should change it every 30 to 45 days. However, if you have it set for “auto,” then you should change your filter quarterly.

2. Clean Your Blower:

Vacuum the blower and fan blades at least once a year to keep your furnace running well. The following video will show you how to change your filter and vacuum out your furnace.

3. Get a Yearly Inspection:

Get your furnace inspected each year, preferably before the cold weather starts so that your furnace will function well all winter. A yearly inspection will also help you catch any small issues before they become a costly repair.

4. Change Your Thermostat Batteries

Change the batteries in your thermostat every year to prevent them from corroding and damaging your thermostat.

Regular maintenance will help your furnace last longer

Heating and Cooling Ottawa: Air Conditioner Maintenance Tips

Try the following air conditioner maintenance tips to keep your unit running more efficiently.

1. Clear Away Obstructions:

Keep your outdoor unit clear of any obstructions such as debris, plants, or other objects that could block the flow of air around it. Your air conditioner needs to have a free flow of air in order to work more efficiently.

2. Remove the Debris Inside Your AC:

Remove any debris that has collected inside your AC unit. This debris can decrease its efficiency and make it more expensive to run. You can do this by hand or by using a vacuum cleaner or shop vac to suck out the unwanted debris.

3. Clean the Coil Fins:

Gently clean the coil fins with a garden hose; use very little water pressure so you don’t damage the fins.

4. Make Sure Your Unit Is Level:

Check that your unit is sitting level. If it is sitting unevenly then it may not work properly.

5. Replace Your Filter:

Clean or replace the air filter two times a year.

6. Get a Yearly Service:

Get your AC unit serviced once a year to make sure that it is running properly and to catch any smaller problems before they become bigger, more costly ones.
