How to Keep Your Holdrege Home Comfortable This Winter


Maintaining your furnace is imperative to keeping it running well and keeping you and your family warm during the Holdrege winter.

There are lots of simple things you can do in between pro servicing to increase the efficiency of your furnace and keep it running in peak shape. Try these furnace maintenance tips:

  • Yes, we’ve said it before, but we can’t emphasize this enough: check your filters regularly and clean or replace them when recommended. This is such a simple way to increase the airflow through your furnace and maintain peak efficiency.
  • Keep all your vents and cool air returns clear of blockages. This includes keeping any ventilation around your home clear.
  • Test your thermostat regularly to confirm that it’s working properly. Simply turn it on and gently lift the temperature setting until you notice your furnace turn on. If it doesn’t turn on, check back to our blog post on furnace repair for additional thermostat tips, or give us a call.
  • If you see dust accumulating around your cool air returns or a lot of dirt within your ducts, think about having your ducts professionally cleaned. To hear more about duct cleaning and how to decide if it’s time to hire someone, check out our blog on duct cleaning.
