Even though it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold weather. It’s still a great time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy recommendations for you to completely take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this time and time again, but replacing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow better through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make your system 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 push 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 wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your heating bills, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find wide variety 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 working as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help add years to its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you would like individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can help achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.
