Even though it’s spring, we could still see more cold weather. It’s still a great time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy ideas for you to completely receive 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 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 more freely through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make your system 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 drive air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at E.B. Air, LLC. We’re happy to help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your heating costs, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find wide variety 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 ignore 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 increase 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 help achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your furnace efficiency and save you money.
