How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency04/05/2016 Although it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold days. It’s still an important time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy recommendations for you to completely reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency. Change Your Furnace Filter You’ve heard this repeatedly, but replacing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow more easily through your house when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly If your home’s ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning. We can assist you. Install a Programmable Thermostat To lower your heating expenses, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty finding one that matches your lifestyle needs. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is operating as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan. Zoned Heating If you wish to have individual control over the temperature of each in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats.
