How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Even though it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold days. It’s still a good time to take a closer review at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy recommendations for you to fully reap 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 key. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines. 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. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your 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 expect. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning. We can assist you.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To lower your heating bills, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty 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 working as it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase 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 help achieve that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.

Half of the energy used in your house is attributed to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key.
