How to Take Advantage of Your Furnaces Efficiency

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 several easy tips for you to fully reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Change Your Furnace Filter
    You’ve heard this frequently, but changing your furnace’s filter is critical. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends changing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow more easily through your residence when you have a clean filter. You will notice improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make your system work harder.
  2. Make Sure Your Ducts Are Sealed Properly
    If your ducts have any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’s 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 expect to be. If you are wondering how well-sealed your ducts are, contact our professionals at Stieferman Heating Company Inc. We can help.
  3. Install a Programmable Thermostat
    To decrease your heating expenses, look into 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 challenges finding one that will meet your lifestyle needs.
  4. Schedule Your Annual Tune-Up
    It’s easy to forget the benefits of an annual tune-up when your furnace is working as planned. Yearly tune-ups keep your furnace as efficient as possible and can help increase its lifespan.
  5. Zoned Heating
    If you want individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can do that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help improve your furnace efficiency and save you money.

Half of the energy used in your home is attributed to your heating and cooling, so efficiency is key.
