Despite the fact it’s spring, we might still see more cold days. It’s still a great time to take a closer look at your furnace efficiency. We have several easy ideas for you to wholly take advantage of the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this repeatedly, but changing your furnace’s filter is so important. Even ENERGY STAR® suggests replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow better 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 make it work harder.
- Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
If your home’s ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently push air throughout your home. And even though your furnace will be working overtime, you still may not be as comfortable as you would hope. If you are curious how well-sealed your ducts are, ask our professionals at Clean Air HVAC. We’re happy to help.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To reduce your heating costs, look into a programmable thermostat. Why spend money cooling your home when you aren’t home? 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 it should. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
- Zoned Heating
If you wish to have 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 enhance your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.
Half of the energy used in your house goes to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is important. At Clean Air HVAC, we can help ensure your heating and cooling system is running at peak efficiency.
