How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Although it’s spring, we could still see more cold weather. It’s still a good time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy ideas for you to fully receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this frequently, but changing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow better through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s harder for your system to efficiently circulate air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at . We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your heating bills, look into a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working as it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you wish to have individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can help achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your furnace efficiency and save you money.
