How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency

Heating

Despite the fact it’s spring, we might still see more cold temps. It’s still an important time to take a closer review at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy recommendations for you to wholly take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this time and time again, but changing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® advises swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder.
  2. 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 drive 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, ask our professionals at E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service. We’re happy to help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your heating expenses, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges finding one that will meet 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 running as it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help extend its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want 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 increase your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.
