How to Get the Best Results from Your New Furnace

A new furnace is a great investment for your home. When the temperature drops, your furnace works around the clock to keep your household cozy and warm. And it can serve you for many years to come if you properly look after it. Thus, it pays off knowing how to get the best results from your new furnace

Keeping the furnace and its surrounding areas clean

To prevent potential fires and allow air to circulate more freely, keep clutter and flammable objects away from the furnace. Vacuum and sweep dust, dirt, or debris, as they can make it harder for your furnace to run efficiently. Also, make sure that nothing is blocking the air vents. 

Programming your thermostat 

The harder your furnace has to work to heat your home, the sooner it may give out. Programming your thermostat allows you to schedule temperatures to rise or fall when there’s no one at home, or when you’re on a holiday. It keeps you from overworking your furnace and wasting energy. 


You may program the settings for cold weather, as well as to coincide with work or school hours. Essentially, lower the temperature when you’re out of the house, but keep it above 55 F so the pipes won’t freeze. 


If you haven’t upgraded to a programmable thermostat yet, it’s worth considering. It helps your furnace hold up for the years to come, and save you money in the long run. Let us know if you need help installing a programmable thermostat.

Adding insulation to windows, walls, and doors

Letting cold air into your home puts unnecessary strain on your furnace to sustain the desired temperature indoors. But proper insulation can make your home comfortable while keeping utility bills in check. 


To trap heat inside and prevent your heating system from working overtime, we recommend adding insulation to doors, walls, and windows. You may add insulation by weatherstripping, caulking, and using bubble wrap or blackout curtains. Insulating shutters, cellular shades, and reflective films are also an option.

Changing your air filter

When built-up particles or pollutants clog the air filter, it causes a block in airflow. This forces your new furnace to work harder. Leaving the air filter unchanged over time, compromises indoor air quality. 


We recommend replacing your air filter every three months, or taking a look at it once a month if you have pets living with you. 


You may need to change your air filter more often if you’re living with young children or individuals with asthma. 

Regular maintenance 

Regular check-ups and maintenance will keep your furnace in great working condition. We recommend scheduling a furnace tune-up every year. This ensures you’re getting the most out of your heating system, and that it uses energy efficiently while keeping your home warm and comfortable. 


Since furnace problems often occur when you least expect them, getting your new furnace checked regularly can prevent expensive breakdowns. To book your maintenance appointment, or to reach one of our furnace experts, you may use our exclusive Mobile app or online form for your convenience.
