Although 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 a few 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 critical. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow more easily through your house 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 make it work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your 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 extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you expect to be. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your heating bills, look into a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that will meet your lifestyle needs.
- 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 extend 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 do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.
Half of the energy used in your house goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical.
