Luxaire got their start in Ohio back in the 1950s, and they’ve been manufacturing quality gas furnaces for North American homes ever since. Their dedication to home comfort includes manufacturing furnaces that are dependable, energy efficient and ENERGY STAR® certified, and among the quietest on the market.
But, to make sure you get the longest life possible from your furnace, it’s important to know about some basic maintenance tasks and be able to identify certain problems you might encounter during your furnace’s lifespan.
Today you’ll learn what you need to know about the maintenance and repairs that will keep your furnace functioning optimally for as many years as possible.
Other common problems that you might encounter with your furnace include that it stops producing enough heat or stops working as efficiently as it should, and this usually means the air filter needs to be replaced.
In fact, you should replace your furnace filter every one to three months during the heating season, so here’s a step-by-step guide to help you with this task:
- Open the access panel or remove it, depending on your model
- Check near the cold air intake to locate the old filter
- Slide out the old filter
- Line up the new filter using the arrows on the frame
- Slide the new filter into place
- Replace or close the access panel
