How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

Despite the fact it’s spring, we could still see more cold temps. It’s still an important time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy ideas for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this time and time again, but replacing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® advises changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s instructions. Air can flow better through your home when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s harder for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Anderson Heating & A/C. We’re happy to help.
  3. 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 challenges finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to ignore the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is operating as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you wish to have 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 home is attributed to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is critical.
