How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency

Heating

Even though it’s spring, we might still see more cold temps. It’s still a great time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy tips for you to fully take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this frequently, but changing your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less regularly, 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 better furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If the ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult for your system to efficiently drive 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, reach out to our professionals at House of Heating Incorporated. We can assist you.
  3. 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 an array of different programmable thermostats and should have no trouble finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to forget 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 extend its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you would like 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 increase 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 important.
