Even though it’s spring, we could still see more cold weather. It’s still a good time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy tips for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this frequently, but replacing your furnace’s filter is key. 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 freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You can experience improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will force it to 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 drive air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working harder, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Woody's Sudden Service Inc. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower your heating expenses, look into a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that will meet your lifestyle needs.
- Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
It’s easy to ignore the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you would like 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 increase your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.
Half of the energy used in your residence is attributed to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key.
