Even though it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold temps. It’s still a good time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to fully reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this repeatedly, but exchanging your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, 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. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will force it to work harder.
- 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 drive air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working harder, 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 Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning. We can help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your heating bills, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t even there? You can find wide variety of different programmable thermostats and should have no difficulty finding one that meets your lifestyle needs.
- 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 extend its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you want 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.
Half of the energy used in your house is attributed to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is important. At Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning, we can help make sure your heating and cooling system is operating at peak efficiency.
