Although it’s spring, we might still see more cold weather. It’s still a great time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to fully receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this frequently, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. Air can flow more freely through your home when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and enhanced 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’s 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 expect. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, reach out to our professionals at Air Service Co.. We can help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your heating costs, 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 will meet your lifestyle needs.
- 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 increase its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you would like individual control over the temperature of different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your furnace efficiency and save you money.
Half of the energy used in your home is due to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key. At Air Service Co., we can help ensure your heating and cooling system is working at peak efficiency.
