Even though it’s spring, we could still see more cold days. It’s still a great time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to completely receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this repeatedly, but changing your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow better through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and greater furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently circulate air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning. We’re happy to help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your heating expenses, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an array 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 overlook the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is operating as expected. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
- 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 on heating bills.
Half of the energy used in your residence goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key.
