Although 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 tips for you to fully reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this repeatedly, but changing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests 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 greater 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 the 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 hope. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Anderson Heating & A/C. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your heating bills, take a look at a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble 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 running as it should. 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 different rooms in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do 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 goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical.
