How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Although it’s spring, we could still see more cold weather. It’s still an important time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy recommendations for you to completely take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this frequently, but replacing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow better through your home when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Air Temperature Control. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your heating costs, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to ignore the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is running 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 want individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.

Half of the energy used in your house is attributed to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key.
