How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Despite the fact it’s spring, we might still see more cold weather. It’s still a great time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy recommendations for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this repeatedly, but replacing 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 guidelines. Air can flow more freely through your residence 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.
  2. 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 circulate 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 wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Woody's Sudden Service Inc. We’re happy to help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your heating costs, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find a large option of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that matches your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to overlook the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working as expected. 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 do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.

Half of the energy used in your residence goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical. At Woody's Sudden Service Inc, we can help you feel confident that your heating and cooling system is running at peak efficiency.
