Tips to Improve Your Furnace Efficiency in Pacheco

Heating

Now that chilly weather is here to stay in Pacheco, most folks will start truly thinking about turning on the furnace for the season. With that flip of the switch comes new attention both for your comfort and for your check book.

Energy efficiency universally has an impact on everyone who uses a furnace or air conditioner and also has an effect on nature depending on the efficiency of the system. So when you’re searching for little ways to make a large impact on the energy efficiency of your furnace this year, consider these pointers:

Easy Fixes

  • Filters: likely the most unused simple fix to help better the energy efficiency of your furnace, swapping out filters as recommended not only helps the air flow more freely, but it can also help you keep your indoor air quality high.
  • Thermostat settings: setting your thermostat a few degrees cooler than usual is a very simple way to save money. Comfort is still paramount, but you may be surprised what a few degrees cooler can do for your energy expenses.
  • Programmable thermostat: don’t feel like constantly adjusting your thermostat before you leave for the day or when you know you won’t be around for a bit? Programmable thermostats can provide you with savings by keeping your home cooler when you’re away or when you’re sleeping and the temperature isn’t as crucial.
  • Weatherstripping: regardless if it’s around your doors or windows, weatherstripping can help keep warm air from escaping after you’ve already paid for it. Take a couple minutes to walk around your home and inspect your windows and doors and figure out if they need to be re-caulked or need new weatherstripping.

Comfort is something we’re always on the search for no matter whether it’s furnace season or air conditioning season. These few tips are a great place to start so you can transition to the new season while still working to improve the efficiency of your furnace and probably save a few dollars.
