How to Take Advantage of Your Furnace’s Efficiency04/05/2016 Even though it’s spring, we could still see more cold weather. It’s still a great time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have some easy ideas for you to wholly receive the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency. Change Your Furnace Filter You’ve heard this time and time again, but changing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® advises swapping it out monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow better through your house when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and enhanced furnace efficiency as well. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will make it 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 would hope. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at All Seasons Comfort Systems Inc. We can help. Install a Programmable Thermostat To lower your heating expenses, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when no one is there? You can find a large option of different programmable thermostats and should have no challenges 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 operating as planned. 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 each in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help increase your furnace efficiency and save on heating bills. Half of the energy used in your house goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is important. At All Seasons Comfort Systems Inc, we can help you feel confident that your heating and cooling system is operating at peak efficiency.
