How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Although it’s spring, we could still see more cold temps. It’s still a great time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy ideas for you to fully reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this repeatedly, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® advises replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more freely through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your home’s ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Local HVAC Repair & Service . We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your heating bills, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find a large option of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that will meet 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 operating as it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your furnace efficiency and save you money.

Half of the energy used in your home goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical.
