One of the best ways to avoid making mistakes is by learning from others. When it comes to maintaining a furnace, there are several common mistakes that homeowners make. However, it’s also easy to sidestep these mistakes by simply becoming aware of them! As your heating repair experts in Fort Collins, we’re here to give you a few common furnace mistakes that homeowners mistake so that you can avoid them.

  1. You’re not changing your furnace filter. You would be surprised at the amount of furnace issues we see that can be easily avoided by simply changing your filter. A dirty filter can cause all sorts of performance and efficiency problems with your system. Let us come out and perform regular maintenance on your furnace so that you don’t even have to think about it.
  2. Are you blocking air registers? Many people mistakenly put furniture or other large objects on top of or in front of their supply and return registers. This causes airflow issues and prevents your room from heating properly. Make sure your air registers are clear of obstructions!
  3. Do you skip your annual maintenance? Getting annual tune-ups is essential if you want your furnace to work properly and efficiently this winter. If you skip a tune-up, there’s a big chance that you’re going to be calling us for a repair later on in the season when you need your furnace the most.  Remember to schedule a tune up every fall for your furnace! If you sign up with us, we’ll remind you when it’s time for a tune-up so that you won’t ever forget!
