Although it’s spring, we will most likely see more cold temps. It’s still a great time to take a closer glance at your furnace efficiency. We have a few easy tips for you to wholly reap the benefits of your furnace’s efficiency.
- Change Your Furnace Filter
You’ve heard this frequently, but replacing your furnace’s filter is key. Even ENERGY STAR® recommends replacing it monthly. You may need to change it more or less often, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Air can flow more easily through your house when you have a clean filter. You will observe improved air quality and better furnace efficiency as well. A buildup of dust and debris inside your system will make it work harder.
- 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 push 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, ask our professionals at Age Heating & Cooling. We can assist you.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
To lower your heating bills, do some research on a programmable thermostat. Why waste money cooling your home when you aren’t home? You can find an array 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 ignore 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.
- Zoned Heating
If you want individual control over the temperature of every room in your home, a zoned heating and cooling system can attain that with multiple programmable thermostats. This can help enhance your furnace efficiency and save on energy bills.
