Even though it’s spring, we could still see more cold weather. It’s still an important time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy tips for you to completely receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging 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 observe improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. Gathering of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your home’s ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s more difficult 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 expect to be. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at County Line Mechanical LLC. We’re happy to help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To decrease your heating expenses, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why throw away money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find a large option 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 overlook 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 extend its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you want individual control over the temperature of each in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills.
