Even though it’s spring, we could still see more cold days. It’s still a good time to take a closer look 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 time and time again, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® advises 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 observe improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your home’s ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder 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 questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Air Quality Solutions. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your heating bills, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t home? 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 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 different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.
